Crocosmiiflora (small flowering) Fire King

Crocosmia Small Flowering crocosmiiflora Fire King . New! Crocosmia's small flowering variety, 'Fire King,' will add bright colors to your garden. Its name sounds in translation as "Fire King." And it lives up to its name. The gracefully convex stems have many tubular orange flowers that mature to an intense red. Attractive green foliage creates a contrast to the flowers. It blooms in August-September.

Small-flowered crocosmia is a colorful exotic! It will delight with its flowering in mid-late summer. It belongs to the Crocosmia Small Flowering Collection series.

Crocosmia Small Flowering Collection includes other equally popular varieties of crocosmia or montbretia. These are Fire King (red flowers), Red King (with orange-red flowers), and Carmine Brilliant (red-yellow flowers). In addition, several named varieties are now available in various hot colors. Plant height is 60-75 cm, and width is 10-30 cm. The growth rate is medium.

Features of the species:

Crocosmia, or Montbretia, or Japanese gladiolus, is a tuberous, herbaceous, perennial plant. The corm is small and covered with reticulate scales. Flowers of 3-5 pcs. are collected in spectacular inflorescences. Flowers are up to 3-4 cm in diameter. During flowering, this plant is gorgeous. Its bright flowers stand for a long time in the cut. But it would be best if you cut them at the second bud's blooming stage. After that, it will begin to grow more intensively corms. The plant has a thin, straight stem with light green, narrowly-obvious upright leaves. Crocosmia inflorescences can be dried for winter bouquets. When dried, they retain their shape and color. It is a frost-resistant plant; however, it should be stored like a gladiolus in winter.

Prefers moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Plant the corms (bulbs) in spring about 8-10 cm deep and 10-15 cm apart.

Guide and tips for planting Gladiolus bulbs

  • Choose the planting location: Gladiolus bulbs prefer full sun 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 8-12 cm deep and place the Gladiolus bulb with the pointed end facing up. Space the bulbs about 12-24 cm apart.

  • Cover the bulbs: Cover the Gladiolus bulbs 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 bulbs a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around them. Gladiolus bulbs prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.

  • Stake the plants: Gladiolus plants can grow tall and may need to be staked for support. Insert stakes into the ground near the bulbs before they start growing to avoid damaging the plant later on.

  • Monitor the bulbs: Gladiolus bulbs 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. Gladiolus plants can bloom in mid to late summer and may require occasional fertilization throughout the growing season.
