Cook up a fiery feast for the eyes in your summer borders with flaming hot Crocosmia 'Fire King', a majestic character for the garden with sizzling orange-red blooms and a neat, clumping habit. Erupting into flower in mid-summer, these blazing blooms sit comfortably among the hottest varieties in the garden, providing that hot summer vibe to enjoy during those long summer evenings. Still going strong well into autumn, their colour perfectly complements the golden September tones in the garden!

With a compact growing habit and clump-forming nature, once established you’ll get a full and rich display of colour every year. For a hardy plant, the blooms are particularly exotic looking. The grassy foliage is an attractive feature too when fresh and green during early summer, before turning to shades of yellow and orange in autumn. Grow Crocosmia 'Fire King' in dense groups for extra oomph, they love a spot in sunny mixed borders, gravel gardens or patio pots.

* Crocosmia are hardy perennials and flower every year once established. After planting, they will flower from their second year onwards. In the first year they may produce foliage only.
