Description :

A little background

The Crocosmia genus, also known as Montbretia or Tritonia, is native to South Africa. The genus only has eight species, but many cultivars have been developed. It all started in 1879 when Victor Lemoine, a botanist from Nancy in France, successfully crossed Crocosmia pottsi X Crocosmia aurea,to produce the hybrid, Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora, our common or garden Montbretia!

Georges Davidson took over from Victor Lemoine and in 1902 received an Award of Garden Merit for 'Georges Davidson’ Crocosmia and then with Crocosmia 'Star of the East'.

Crocosmia 'Star of the East' has large bright orange flowers about three centimetres in length and bronze foliage. It is a robust and vigorous, summer flowering variety, which likes to be planted in good garden soil in a sunny spot.
