Lucifer’s garden Takeover

Crocosmia 'Lucifer' in the Garden

Crocosmia 'Lucifer' in the Garden

Several years ago I purchased some corms of Crocomia ‘Lucifer’ and planted them in the garden. They grew and produced their amazing bright red flowers above their wonderful lanceolate  leaves.

Not bad, I thought and thought no more….and didn’t bother to remove the dead flowers….the seed heads looked good to me.

Now, several years layer, Lucifer seems to have taken over the garden with his bright flames.

Endless pleasure from a distance or close up  and personal…even on a rainy day!

    No! I just plant things and if they grow they grow….I know people who cannot grow Crocosmia…the ground is too wet….I suggest raising beds but the don’t listen and keep trying..and failing.

    From the evidence of those beautiful pictures, it seems there’s a lot of truth in the old saying; “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t know”. Tell your Lucifer, I love his work!

    Thank you Ann….. people say you should not use such vibrant colours too abundantly in a garden…ours is so small that there’s no room for anything else it seems….so the colour comes when it does…hangs around and then goes.

    I think gardens are very personal spaces and if colour’s your thing well then you and Lucifer should just go ahead and knock yourselves out with it! As for other people; let them sort out their own gardens!

    I wish I could get that colour into our garden!
