His Majesty Crocosmia (Montbretia) blooms with the largest flowers in the genus at 3-4" across. Like rich flames, the deep orange to burnt-red flower spikes rule the late summer garden. His Majesty Crocosmia is well-behaved but needs some room to grow--but won’t take over, like the friendly monarch it is! Hummingbirds love Crocosmia (sometimes known as Coppertips or Falling Stars), and both the flowers and seed heads make great cut flowers. While they are at their best with moderate watering, they are drought tolerant once established. With grass-like foliage that adds season-long interest, just cut it back at the end of the season once it’s looking tired. Crocosmia may not bloom the first season, especially in colder zones, but it is perennial and once established it will reward you with spectacular blooms. 30-40" tall x 24-40" wide.
