Hi Gang, I have some sort of Crocosmia; I think it is Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora (Montbretia). It has been in bloom for about a month and is a very common plant in this part of the world (greater Houston area). It is vigorous, and the flowers are screaming orange. I've heard there are redder versions of Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora, and even yellow forms. Anyone out there want to trade for a few of the orange corms? How about regular Crosmia species, are they tolerant types that don't mind too much rain? I've read that Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora is invasive, and perhaps it can be in some situations. However, in my yard it grows shallowly and is easily controlled by weeding it once a year. Cordially, Joe Conroe TX A wonderfully fragrant, darker-than-Ellen-Bosanquet Crinum is blooming this week. I don't know the ID.
