Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora 'Meteore'
Masses of erect flower stems with trumpet shaped flowers, blending yellow, orange and red tones for a stunning late summer display. Fantastic as cut flowers due to their colour combinations. Hardy and easy to grow. This plant dies down in winter to re-grow in spring.
Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Tidy away any old stems and leaves to encourage strong shoots in the spring.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
July - September
