Q.Will my Crocosmia Lucifer corms sprout this year?

Zone Clarksville, TN | Anonymous added on March 18, 2020 | Answered

I planted some dry, wizened Crocosmia corms last year, but only the largest corm showed any growth. Its sprout looked like a blade of grass about 6”-8” long. A man trod on the young foliage, and it did not sprout more last year. It is now mid-March, and though other plants are putting forth green shoots, I see nothing from the Crocosmia. Do you think it stands a chance or shall I try to start afresh? Since there are no sprouts, I have nothing to show you.

If you don't see new growth by June, you have lost that crocosmia and need to start again.
