Crocosmia x Lucifer is a striking perennial plant known for its fiery-red, funnel-shaped flowers that bloom in late summer to early autumn. The flowers grow on tall spikes above the upright, sword-shaped green leaves, creating a dramatic display of color in the garden.
The plant is a hybrid of two Crocosmia species, and it has inherited the best characteristics of both parents. The foliage is similar to Crocosmia masoniorum, while the large, vibrant flowers are reminiscent of Crocosmia crocosmiiflora. The flowers are held in terminal clusters, each bloom lasting several days and opening in succession along the stem. The striking red flowers are also attractive to hummingbirds and other pollinators.
Crocosmia x Lucifer prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It grows to a height of 3 to 4 feet (90 to 120 cm) and a spread of 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 cm). It is a low-maintenance plant, but deadheading spent blooms can help to prolong the blooming season. The plant also benefits from regular watering during dry periods.
Overall, Crocosmia x Lucifer is a beautiful and easy-to-grow plant that adds a vibrant burst of color to the garden. It works well in mixed borders and can also be planted in containers.
