Crocosmia 'Emily McKenzie'

Crocosmia 'Emily McKenzie' (Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora (Montbretia))

I'm trying a pot of this Crocosmia this time, as the corms I planted failed.

I agree lovely combo....good luck with your pot :)

It is one of the more tender ones. I have 'Solaterre' surviving thru the last 3 winters under pebbles, so maybe with a covering.... ? This one is lovely, the biggest flowers that I know.

Used to grow this one in the Midlands without any trouble, have just ordered three new plants waiting for them to arrive, good luck, you have more chance of Emily surviving as a mature plant I am sure......

Thanks. It's in the more sheltered back garden, so maybe it'll like it there and stay...I hope!

Fingers crossed....

Definitely! I started 'Babylon' from pots, so maybe I'll be lucky with Emily too. I tried twice with corms, and not a single plant appeared. :-((

What a gorgeous colour you remember Mr Crocosmia on here? His whole garden was crocosmias in pots......a fantastic sight!

Yes, I do - it's such a shame they don't post on here any longer. We could do with picking their brains, could't we.
