£7.99

A stunning crocosmia with orange-yellow flowers from June to August. It is highly attractive to hoverflies and bumblebees and provides a burst of colour to a sunny or partially shaded border. Crocosmia 'George Davidson' is named after the head gardener at Westwick Hall, an early crocosmia enthusiast who bred around 13 varieties of the plant from 1895 onwards.

Care instructions

If possible, resist the urge to tidy up straggly or faded leaves in the autumn as a number of insects use these for shelter over winter, and the old leaves also help protect emerging shoots from spring frosts. Remove old leaves in early Spring. If a clump of crocosmia becomes too large or congested, dig up the entire plant in the Spring and divide the plant into smaller sections.
