Budding Montbretia – A Study

Montbretia Crocosmia

I love the forms this flower takes on in all its stages from budding, through flowering, to seeding. This is a study of the forms it takes during its budding stage.

  1. Interesting and this looks like a very beautiful plant. Have never seen the Montbretia plant.

    1. Thank you, Jill πŸ™‚ I only learned the other day that some folk class this as an invasive species in their gardens because it can be hard to get rid of once you have it. I have had it growing here for 24 years and have had no troubles with it spreading or taking over borders. It sure ain’t no Triffid πŸ™‚

      1. It has been a bit invasive in my garden, and a cull was needed. It decided otherwise and still pops up from time to time, but I still think its so bright and cheerful way into the autumn.
