AVAILABLE 2019. There is something rather wicked sounding about the name Babylon. Naughty but nice perhaps. It is certainly a nice crocosmia, with large rather open mango-red flowers with mahogany throats in late summer and early autumn and the usual sword-like leaves. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 24 to 30 in. 2 litre pot.
Babylon, the once great city located in ancient Mesopotamia and modern day Iraq, got itself a bad name, especially in the Old Testament, where it's pretty much a synonym for bad behaviour of various kinds. But we horticulturalists may prefer to think of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world.
Crocosmia Babylon is a hardy cormous perennial with sword shaped leaves and red flowers with mahogany throats in late summer suitable for sun or semi-shade.
