Soil Preferences: Well-drained soil that does not become waterlogged.
Climate Preferences: Crocosmia are winter-hardy in temperate regions.

Landscaping Tips: Mix crocosmia anywhere where bright color is needed in the late summer: these flowers will bloom after many of your brighter bulbs fade. Consider mixing clumps of these bright flowers among tall-growing perennials or near less-vibrant trees or shrubs.
Planting: Drainage is vital to crocosmia. Find a well-drained area and consider amending the soil with peat moss or compost to improve drainage. Plant in full sun. Plant the crocosmia 2-3 inches deep and 8-10 inches apart, with the pointed end of the bulb facing up. Water generously, settling the soil.
