'Twighlight Fairy Crimson' is a Crocosmia with bronze-green foliage and firey red, hummingbird-attracting flowers.
'Twilight Fairy Crimson' has bronze foliage and short, multibranched flower spikes covered in crimson red flowers. The compact size, showy foliage and flowers make this a natural for mixed containers, smaller gardens or at the front of the border in a large garden. Forms multiple crowns quickly for container gardening. The foliage is like Crocosmia 'Solfatare', except shorter and the flowers are red rather than apricot yellow. Attracts hummingbirds. Excellent for cutting. Full to part sun in average to moist well-drained soil. Clumping.
