Crocosmia 'Walberton Red' is very late flowering, for us just overlapping with the final August blooms of Crocosmia 'Venus' and 'Star of the East' and continuing on alone to October. The red buds open to 2- inch wide rosy coral flowers that have orange red reverses.

August to October.  22 in. x 12 in.

Rosy Coral flowers

Sun     Zones 8, 9, 10
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.
