Crocosmia ‘Météore’
at Digging Dog

Crocosmia

Montbretia

Coveted by florists, these brightly colored flowers bloom along the length of tall, arching spikes, which emerge from handsome clumps of swordlike foliage. If given well drained soil and divided every two to three years, this fountain-shaped plant will continue to pour spectacular color into your garden for a long, long time.

Bred in 1887 by French nurseryman and hybridizer Victor Lemoine, ‘Météore’ showers the garden with large warm-hued flowers. Broad rounded petals have red-streaked, burnt orange backsides, while a cinnabar throat and cozy orange and amber colors enhance the interior. And if the abundant lively blooms aren’t reason enough to usher this Crocosmia into your garden, there’s more—tangerine-tinted buds, purple calyxes and a verdant clump of sword-shaped upright leaves.

Blooms August – September.

Size: 2'–2-1/4' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 0.
