5.00

AVAILABLE 2019. Always very popular, George Davison produces lovely arching flower stalks with an abundance of trumpet-shaped ‘zig-zag’ vivid lemon-yellow flowers. Will benefit from being divided every couple of years or so, as crocosmia can become over-crowded and so flower less prolifically. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 24-28 in. 1 litre pot.

We used to wonder who George Davison was. Now we know this variety is named in honour of the head gardener at Westwick Hall, an early crocosmia enthusiast who bred around 13 varieties of the plant around the end of the nineteenth century.

Crocosmia are one of South Africa's best known exports. In their native habitat they grow in grasslands: over here they have adapted well to similar habitats, and you can often see patches of wild plants, usually known as montbretia, widespread in Cornwall and parts of Ireland.

Crocosmia George Davison is a hardy cormous perennial with lance-shaped leaves and bright lemon yellow flowers in late summer suitable for sun or semi-shade.
