I am not referring to the devil, despite our current horrible situations.
Lucifer is a crazy beautiful plant that I share quite often.
There are other Crocosmias in other colors, but this guy is the king.
Crocosmia crocosmiiflora, Monbretia, ‘Lucifer’ is its proper name.
It shows off for weeks in June and July.
It will need some support when the blooms develop. It likes to lean.
If you do not have this plant, put it at the top of your wish list.
If you are local, I will share some next year.
Send me a request, so I can pot some up for you after it blooms.
I wish it did have a sweeter name that doesn’t seem evil.
I still love it.
