Q.Caring for Crocosmias

Anonymous added on June 13, 2011 | Answered

A friend gave me some crocosmia corms, which I planted in my backyard over a month ago. The plants have not produced new growth yet. Shall I cut the existing leaves to promote new growth?

Leave you crocosmias alone and hope for the best. They may have been too old, or maybe they are taking their time. Crocosmias are best planted in the fall, so you may not see much action this year, but may be surprised to see them next year.
