Crocosmia x 'Walberton Yellow' (Walcroy)
Crocosmia, Montbretia
zones 6-9
Description: Exotic-looking, bright orange-yellow flowers stand tightly together in rows on wiry, gracefully arched stems in summer. The elegant stems make wonderful, long-lasting cut flowers and the shorter inter-bud length of this selection lends itself to better floral impact. It demonstrates good vigor, long flowering, and reliable hardiness to zone 5, characteristics that often elude Crocosmia.
