Crocosmia masoniorum bears vermilion buds which open to orange flowers with yellow centers. The reverses are alternating scarlet and orange. Take advantage of the burgundy stems to complement other purples in the garden. Foliage is fairly broad.

Early summer.  4 ft.

Vermillion flowers

Sun     Zones 6, 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 or early fall arrangements.
