Description

Crocosmia 'Red King' is a tall-growing Crocosmia with vermillion/scarlet-red flowers that have orange filaments, anthers and stigma. Sometimes described as a shorter-growing cultivar, we find 'Red King' grows to at least 70-80cm and often closer to 90-100cm: hardly a short plant. A dramatic flower, Crocosmia 'Red King' creates a fiery hot exotic atmosphere in the summer garden.
