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.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Viola ‘Rebecca’ for it's sweet, delectable scent and tidy compact clumps of dapper evergreen foliage. All are equally captivating, though no two are alike, each ebullient white flower showcases a creamy lemon flushed center and irregularly patterned, deep violet edges. This sweet smelling Viola should be ensconced near a well-traveled path or seating area, where its plentiful color flecked flowers can be easily relished ‘till the first hard frost.
