Crocosmia ‘Paul’s Best Yellow’ by Malcolm Allison.

Crocosmia ‘Paul’s Best Yellow’ is a recent hybrid raised by Cotswold Garden Flowers; it’s a lovely plant, produces masses of flowers in July & August on 60cm stems.

The flowers are a clear yellow & the plant flowers in the middle of the Crocosmia season i.e. after early ones like C. masoniorum, but before late ones like C. ‘Star of the East’.

Crocosmia ‘Paul’s Best Yellow’ looks like it’s a hybrid from C. masoniorum & it doesn’t appear to set any seed (the dried seed heads of some Crocosmias are an attractive feature in themselves, useful for dried flower arrangements; not this one, unfortunately).

Crocosmia ‘Paul’s Best Yellow’ plant is vigorous & happy in average garden soil in sun or part shade.
