Discover the vibrant Crocosmia x Curtonus 'Lucifer' (Montbretia), a perennial that showcases breathtaking scarlet-red flowers attracting hummingbirds in summer. Ideal for rich, moisture-retentive soils in full or partial sun, this impressive specimen may not bloom in the first season in colder zones, but will dazzle with spectacular flowers once established. Best in zones 5-9, cover with mulch for winter insulation in zones 5-6. The plant effectively withstands up to -10°F, making it one of the hardiest and tallest Crocosmia hybrids. Originating from South Africa's moist grasslands, this hybrid requires sunny spots for best growth, though it can tolerate some shade. Although it endures drought, maintain soil moisture during the growing season. Enhance bloom production with regular deadheading, careful division every 3-4 years, and retaining foliage post-flowering for photosynthesis and energy storage. Perfect for beds, borders, fresh-cut flowers, and centerpieces in container arrangements, the Crocosmia 'Lucifer' is a rewarding addition to any green space. Frost-sensitive bulbs can be unearthed in fall and replanted in spring in colder climates.
