Crocosmia Lucifer blooms in summer with brilliant, hummingbird attracting scarlet-red flowers on arching stems. Plant Crocosmia Lucifer bulbs (corms) in spring for very showy blooms and excellent cut flowers.
Summer Blooming Bulbs, including popular varieties such as gladiolus and dahlias, are planted in the spring and bloom in the summer. Most of these bulbs are tropical and require warm weather to be planted. There must not be any danger of frost and your ground temperature must have reached 55 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. Many
of our summer blooming bulbs can be planted as perennials in zones 9-10 (zone 8 if mulched), but should be treated as annuals in cooler climates. You can lift them and store them in the fall, or bring patio pots inside before frost. See page 15 of our Planting Guide for a bulb depth planting illustration.

The orange red flowers really pop in my garden
I love how it pops in my garden, and it gets bigger every year without being invasive. And I saw a humming bird around it last week. Doesn't get better than this.

Planted these Crocosmia bulbs with high hopes. Also planted some Tigridia and some fragrant glad bulbs at same time in spring. To my dismay, not one Crocosmia bulb sprouted. Meanwhile, Tigidias and glads have been blooming all summer and even now. My only thought is the Crocosmia bulbs must have been old or stored under adverse conditions. Very disappointed with this purchase.

I ordered 20 bulbs to fill out around a crocosmia I already had in my garden. They did not look particularly healthy and I am not surprised that out of 20 I only had one grow. Very disappointed in this product and will be asking for a refund.

I put these in my landscape because they're known to be so pretty. These lived up to my expectations. I'm very glad I bought them and added them to the backyard landscaping. They are in kind of a wet spot, but did ok despite that.
No blooms yet (early August)
from Charleston, IL (zone 5b)
I planted these in mid-April. The foliage has grown nicely, but there are no blooms yet. As it's a perennial, I am hoping for blooms next summer. I don't know if it's typical of crocosmia to not bloom the first year. If it blooms next year (or later this summer -- fingers crossed!) I'll be pleased with this plant.

I love High Country Gardens, but had NO luck with this plant (bulb)
