As easy to grow as gladiolus, crocosmia are longer-blooming, never need staking, and their small, star-like flowers blend well into the garden and bouquets. No wonder so many gardeners today are as excited about them as gardeners were a century ago.
TIPS FOR SUCCESS: We’ll say it again — crocosmias are as easy to grow as glads. Give them well-drained soil and a sunny to lightly shaded site. They’re hardy perennials in zones 7 and warmer, or you can dig and store them like glads. Beware though: all crocosmia can become invasive in warm climates, and the original antique montbretia is especially vigorous — so please handle with care. Learn more
The Aztecs held the tuberose sacred to their goddess of art, beauty, and love. By 1730 it grew in Williamsburg; and in 1893 a Boston gardener wrote that “everyone who has a garden knows the Tuberose.”
TIPS FOR SUCCESS: Tuberoses need full sun, moist soil and plenty of nutrition to do their best. In the NORTH, we recommend growing them in pots , starting them inside and then moving them outside when nights warm up into the 60s. In the SOUTH, you can bloom them successfully in the ground, where singles often do better and bloom earlier. Plant in a hot sunny spot with well-drained soil. Keep soil moist and fertilize regularly. Learn more.
