Crocosmias form dense clumps of upright sword-shaped foliage, from which sprays of bright orange or red flowers, carried in branched spikes, appear in late summer.
Crocosmia 'Emily McKenzie' is a compact crocosmia. Its wide, bright orange flowers have an attractive mahogany throat. It's ideal for the growing in swathes through the herbaceous border and the flowers are excellent for cutting.
Grow Crocosmia 'Emily McKenzie' in well-drained soil in full sun. In colder regions choose a sheltered site and mulch the corms in autumn to proect them over winter. Divide congested clumps in spring.

how deep do i need to plant the bulbs
not to deep,they tend to spread everywhere if not kept in check but they are lovely.you can chuck bulbs to one side and forget them the next thing they will be growing.they look lovely in a border in the back.there are many types to choose from and easy to grow on any soil.
My favourite crocosmia.
Found one of these in the bargin bin at my local garden centre, it's a little gem of a crosmia.
Great plant with wonderful flowers!
I love this crocosmia for late autumn flowering.
