Each Pot Makes A Lovely Display And Can Be Either Left In Pots Or Taken Out And Used To Add Colour To Larger Containers, Or Borders.

“George Davison” Is Worth A Place In All But The Smallest Of Gardens. The Seven Or So Crocosmia Species All Originate From South Africa And Since The 19th Century Considerable Hybridizing Has Given Us Some Wonderful Selections For Adding Colour To The Summer Garden. Strictly Speaking They Should Be Classed As Bulbs Or Corms, But The Hardier Types In Particular Are Looked Upon As Perennials.

All Six Cultivars Have Stood The Test Of Time. “George Davison” Is Named After The Head Gardener At Westwick Hall, An Early Crocosmia Enthusiast Who Bred About 13 Varieties Of The Plant From 1895 Onwards. “George Davison” Produces Strappy Evergreen Leaves And Upright Swords Of Golden Yellow Freesia-Like Flowers. It Creates An Eye-Catching Display For Several Weeks. The Combination Of Foliage, Flower And Attractive Seedheads Give “George Davison” Great Garden Value, Especially In Plant Combinations.

Plant “Crocosmia George Davison” 8-10 Cms Deep And About 15-20 Cms Apart They Like Fertile Well-Drained Soil That Is Moist In Spring And Summer But Drier In Winter. It Does Best In Full To Part Sun. If You Delay Planting Your Bulbs Into May You Tend To Get Flowers That Last Longer In The Autumn, Than In The Peak Of The Summer Heat.

This Pleasing Summer Bulb Makes A Striking And Unusual Accent For Perennial Borders And Mixed Plantings. It Also Works Well In Containers. “George Davison’s” Flowers Are Attractive To Bees And Will Brighten Any Large, Sunny Border. These Perennials Are Most Impressive When Planted In Large Clumps.

When Frost Threatens In The Late Autumn, Dig Up The Bulbs If They Are In The Ground Carefully Leaving Soil Around The Roots And Put Them In A Well-Ventilated Shady Place On Their Sides Until The Leaves Wither. Cut Off The Leaves And Store The Bulbs Upside Down Over Winter In Dry Peat. It Needs To Be Dry When Dormant. When There Is No More Frost In The Spring They Can Be Replanted.
