"Flowers have a mysterious and subtle influence upon the feelings, not unlike some strains of music. They relax the tenseness of the mind. They dissolve its vigor."

- Henry Ward Beecher

About Montbretia crocosmia

 Crocosmia also referred to as monbretia in the UK is part of the iris family called Iridaceae. These evergreen plants usually flower from the early months of summer in Romania. The pollination is done by hummingbirds and insects. The genus name comes from the Greek word krokos which means saffron, because the plant has a strong saffron smell. Crocosmias are grown all over the world and in a few parts of Romania as well. Did you know that just one plant can produce up to 12 stems, each stem with almost a hundred flowers?
   Make sure to plant the crocosmia in a soil that is not waterclogged and add food flowers every spring. Once the winter comes, you should store the crocosmania flowers indoors. And as far as dividing them, this should be done every 4 years and only during the months of Autumn.
