|Crocosmia rosea is a cormous perennial with upright, linear or lance- or sword-shaped, basal leaves. Produces irregular, funnel-shaped, orange-red, red or pink flowers in many-flowered spikes on arching stems. In general, Tritonia produces clumps of narrow, swordlike leaves, and long branched stems bearing clusters of bright flowers in late spring to early summer. Excellent as cut flowers, long lasting. Plant corms 2 to 3 inches deep, in well drained soil. In areas that are wet or very cold, corms should be lifted in fall for winter storage. Good plant for borders and rock gardens.
