Description

Glowing in the late summer sunshine, the bright blooms of Crocosmia 'Peach Melba' are a decadent dessert for the eyes, helping to extend the beautiful colours of the season almost into autumn. Elegantly arching over light green, sword-shaped foliage, each stem is embellished with burnished, coppery buds which burst open one by one to reveal the peachy petals within. With such an elegant habit, this is an important structural plant for the border, keeping its shape long after other perennials have begun to fade. Crocosmia 'Peach Melba' makes a great cut flower too, with long, wiry stems and impressive vase life. 

Plant Crocosmia 'Peach Melba' in a sunny or partially shaded spot in a free draining soil which doesn't become too dry in summer. This hardy perennial bulb multiplies over time, forming a sturdy clump which will return every year. Crocosmia often take time to settle in and usually only produces foliage in their first season—but don't let this put you off, it's so worth it for the long run and requires hardly any maintenance! Tolerant of a range of soil types, these ever-reliable garden favourites provide a long season of interest, producing flowers galore as summer mellows into autumn.
