Crocosmias produce dense clumps of upright iris-like foliage. In midsummer this makes a good background for the small, profuse flowers. 'Lucifer' is an aptly-named variety because its flowers are the hottest coloured of all - a searing paprika red. The individual blooms are not as big as other crocosmias', but small-flowered varieties such as this are the hardiest which makes them a wise choice in cold districts. Grown in a flower border, they provide structure and colour. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

when do i cut crocosmia foliage
Very easy to grow and gives a beautiful display of colour each year.
In answer to the question of when to cut Crocosmia foliage,late Sept or Nov i either pull or cut the foliage off.
Far taller in my ground than the 100cm quoted more like 120 Cm. Bulbs benefit from splitting away from the stack of previous season's growth every 3-4 years. On clay it doesn't spread that fast
Brilliant,reliable Autumn colour. Needs keeping in check. Great for a beginner though.
I have had crocosmia this year and yes they are impressive suc vibrant colours,
Most of my crocosmia lucifer didnt flower this year why is that, thinking did I plant them too deep ? would appreciate some advice please.
I have dug them up in the hope that I can replant them or split them, hopefully to get a better display next year.
Most of my crocosmia lucifer didnt flower this year why why would this be as they are about 1 foot tall thanks GEORGE
