Crocosmia 'Lucifer' care

Question from Anne Adrienne Colley

In forum: Gardening how-to videos

I have 3 Crocosmia 'Lucifer' in a west-facing bed with part sun/part shade. They have not flowered very well and finished flowering in late July. How can I produce more flowers?

Thanks Carol! I think if it means losing the flowers this year then I'll wait!! I know a lot of people think they're invasive but I love them!!!!

Lots of things can be moved with the loss of one season's flowers. I think you'd be unlikely to destroy the crocosmia tubers. If you really want to do it, water them thoroughly for a few days before the move, and prepare the ground where they are going in advance. Then do it quickly with as much soil still on the roots as you can manage. Then keep on watering until they look perky again.

Can I move my Crocosmia 'Lucifer'

Question from Gilly Burgess

In forum: Crocosmia 'Lucifer'

Hi - I really need to move a patch of my 'Lucifer'. They look healthy and gave a lovely display last year. Is it possible to move them now without damaging them too much? Any tips welcome if it's possible to shift them! Many Thanks

What cultivar of Crocosmia is this please?

Question from rebecca

In forum: Identify a plant

I am currently doing a plant journal for university where I have to identify plants within designed schemes. I have been told that this plant is Crocosmia 'Lucifer' but i am not sure as the seed heads and plant in general look bigger. I just want to double check.

Many Thanks,
