Brilliantly Hot Scarlet-Red Lucifer Crocosmia

  • Full Sun
  • Attracts Pollinators
  • Resistant to Deer and Rabbits
  • Blooms Mid to Late Summer

Don’t let the name fool you. This is one gorgeous plant! Crocosmia 'Lucifer' blooms in summer with brilliant scarlet-red flowers on arching stems.

Lucifer attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. What a show for you to watch! This plant grows well in your garden, containers and makes gorgeous cut flowers. While planted in your garden they will multiple and naturalize themselves each year.

Crocosmia Lucifer will do best in rich, moisture retentive soils in full sun or partial shade. Cover with mulch to insulate in winter in zones 5-6.

They may not bloom the first season, especially in colder zones, but are perennial and once established will reward you with spectacular blooms all summer long.

Since this is a tropical plant the best time to plant your bulbs is in the spring/summer when there is no danger of frost and your ground temperature has reached 55 degrees Fahrenheit. You won’t have to worry about deer or rabbits much as they tend to leave this plant alone.

With the mature height of 30-36” tall you will want to plant them towards the back of your garden. Add shorter plants in front to add a natural look and feel to your home. Your neighbors will stop and ask what that beautiful red plant is in the back!

Get ready to design your summer garden with beautiful plants from our experts at Nature Hills Nursery!
