Montbretia (Crocosmia × crocosmiiflora)
Synonyms: Crocosmia aurea × Crocosmia pottsii
Montbretia looks like a small gladiolus until it blooms in late summer, when abundant sprays of orange, gold, or yellow star-shaped flowers are held by gracefully thin, arching, zigzag stems rising from a cluster of pale green, sword-shaped leaves.
Noteworthy Characteristics: Sometimes invasive. Excellent cut flowers.
Care: This South African native thrives in warm, south-facing locations with good drainage. Site near a wall where not reliably hardy. Apply a thick layer of mulch in winter. Lift and divide clumps in spring to maintain vigor.
Propagation: Divide in spring.
