We have been surprised by the long season of bloom on Crocosmia 'Orangeade'. Open-faced tubular flowers are distributed along tall arching stems that rise above the bold pleated foliage. In height, this is intermediate between the short selections and tall plants like 'Lucifer'.

July to September.  4 ft. x 3 ft.

Orange flowers

Sun     Zones 7, 8, 9
Brilliantly colored six petaled tubular flowers on arching stems rise out of lance shaped foliage in high summer. These cormous perennials are treasures from South Africa for the hot sunny border. Hummingbirds war over their blooms. Good for cut flowers. The dried seed heads are very attractive and useful for late summer and early fall arrangements.
