Five years ago, I talked a reluctant plant owner into letting me take a few starts of red Crocosmia.
I had this wild idea that they would look good next to white Shasta daisies, since both flowers bloom about the same time.
Unfortunately, I planted them in an unfenced area with no irrigation, so they were at the mercy of all of nature.
These scarlet blossoms are a real treat, as I thought the deer had eaten all my starts years ago. You never know when a plant will surprise you and come back to life!
