Crocosmia Large Flowering Mixture
Crocosmia Large Flowering Mixture - flower bulbs and perennial plants from Holland
Product Description - Crocosmia Large Flowering Mixture
Crocosmia - or montbreccia is a tuberous, herbaceous, perennial plant. The bulb is small and covered with scales. Flowers, 3 to 5 in number, are arranged in paniculate inflorescences. Plant height to 60-90 cm. It has a slender, straight stem with light green, narrow, paniculate erect leaves. Flowers up to 3 - 5 cm in diameter, aggregated in small paniculate inflorescence. The flowers are yellow or orange-red. Flowering occurs in June or August. During flowering the plant is incredibly beautiful. Its brightly coloured flowers last a long time in a cut (up to two weeks). But cut them off at the second bud stage. By cutting the flower, the bulb will begin to grow more vigorously. Crocosmia inflorescences can be dried for winter bouquets. When dried, they retain their shape and colouring. Crocosmia need a lot of light to flower. So plant it in an open, sunny spot in the garden. The soil should be nutritious, rich in humus and moderately moist. It doesn't like stagnant water. Over-watering will often cause the bulbs to rot.
Large-flowered species should be dug up for the winter. Dig up the bulbs in dry weather in late October as they will be growing and storing nutrients until then. Shake the bulbs and their offspring off the ground, trim off the leaves and stems to a height of 5 cm, then leave them to dry for a few days. Place the dried bulbs in a box or paper bag, cover with peat and store indoors or in the cellar at 5 - 7°C.

How to Plant - Crocosmia Large Flowering Mixture
Guide and tips for planting crocosmia plants
Choose the planting location: Crocosmia plants prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. Avoid planting in areas with standing water or where the soil remains soggy after rainfall.
Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or debris from the planting area. Amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.
Plant the bulbs: Dig a hole that is about 4-6 inches deep and place the Crocosmia corms with the pointed end facing up. Space the corms about 6-8 inches apart.
Cover the bulbs: Cover the Crocosmia corms with soil and gently press down to remove air pockets. Make sure the soil level is even with the surrounding soil.
Water the bulbs: Give the corms a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around the bulbs. Crocosmia plants prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.
Mulch the area: Add a layer of organic mulch around the bulbs to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the base of the corms to prevent rot.
Monitor the bulbs: Crocosmia corms typically take about 2-3 weeks to emerge from the soil, so be patient. Once they emerge, water and fertilize regularly to encourage healthy growth. Crocosmia plants can bloom in mid to late summer and may require occasional fertilization throughout the growing season.
