When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

23 Jul 2018 • This is the #crocosmia that was here when we moved in. Very tall but a bit more orange and a bit less rampant than Lucifer 🧡

Thanks both. It’s the same size as Lucifer but I’m afraid I don’t know what variety it is @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom @pelly

Does it get much sun Nicki? Lack of sun is probably more likely to affect flowering than lack of water I think, as although they need moisture they also like it free-draining @nicks

When they both flower I’ll post them together and see if I can work out what it is 🤔 @pelly

I've had a look and I think it may be Emberglow 🤔🤔

Mmmm 🤔 RHS says Emberglow is only hardy to -10 and this is as tough as old boots 😉😂 Also Emberglow is only 30” tall and this is much taller... @pelly
