Crocosmia 'Emily McKenzie,' part of the Showcase series, stands out for its exceptional floral displays. Tall, arching stems adorned with a profusion of tubular flowers create a cascade of coral-orange brilliance reminiscent of a tropical sunset. The vivid and lively colour of the blossoms adds warmth and energy to your garden, making it a focal point that captures attention and admiration.

The slender, sword-shaped foliage of 'Emily McKenzie' enhances the plant's overall grace and structural elegance. These lush green leaves provide an attractive backdrop to the vibrant blossoms, creating a dynamic interplay of form and colour that enriches your outdoor space.

Easy to cultivate and low-maintenance, Crocosmia Showcase 'Emily McKenzie' thrives in well-drained soil and a sunny to partially shaded location. Whether planted in borders, flower beds, or containers, this Crocosmia variety adds a touch of the exotic to your garden, creating a captivating atmosphere that lasts from midsummer well into the fall.

To plant:
• Choose a sunny spot with well-draining soil.
• Plant the corms (bulbs) in spring about 4 inches deep and 6 inches apart.
