The flowers of Emily McKenzie are a deep orange with a throat coloured mahogany. Crocosmias prefer to be planted in well drained soil that is mulched over winter. Crocosmias increase well in the garden if left undisturbed, once they have bulked up they will need to be lifted and split every 3-4 years.They are also good for using as cut flowers. Plant 10 cms deep and 12 cms apart. They enjoy full sun but can also be used in semi shaded areas of the garden.
Soil type: Most soils that are free draining
