Description

Get into the sunset state of mind, just like this fabulously exotic-looking crocosmia! Flowering in a balmy blend of orange, coral and pink, Crocosmia 'Sunset' has absolutely got the sundown vibe going on. This variety captures all the best colours from all the most jaw-dropping sunsets ever to grace our skies, all combined into one easy-to-grow perennial garden treasure which you can enjoy during summer year after year. It’s impossible to get bored of these colours. After all, you can never watch too many sunsets!

Crocosmias often take a year to settle in before they start flowering. In the first year, you can expect to see their lovely fresh-green grassy foliage. From the second year onwards, you can don your sunglasses and soak up the sunny glow from the blooms of Crocosmia 'Sunset'! These fully hardy perennials are so easy to grow and once established they virtually look after themselves, multiplying and forming bigger groups each year — they get more sensational every time.

Crocosmias 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.
