Pierre from Hamilton, New Zealand

Nice one... and now I know about Crocosmia :) We have Montbretia here as a wild flower; I think because it is very common it is undervalued but a pleasant flower none the less.

13 Aug 2015 10:58pm

@Pierre: Thanks very much, Pierre - I know the plant from back home as Montbretia too. I haven't seen the flower in the Wild here - but one thing is for sure, if you have one plant ---- in a short time you can plant a field !! Kind regards MN

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Montbretia we call it. Best left in the wild garden or in the wild. It makes a wonderful splash of colour on the coastal footpaths in Wales. By isolatingg the blooms from the leaves you have caught the lovely delicacy of the flower sprays

14 Aug 2015 10:12am

@grouser: Thanks grouser, we call them Montbretia too ---- So you have them wild in England ---- I didn't know. Here they are a hit for the garden !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its not a hit the next year,unless you watch it closely after blooming. --- But looks awesome. - Kindest regards MN
