Crocosmia corms should be planted in fertile and moist but well-drained soil in spring after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed to 55-65 degrees F. Provide moderate water and deadhead regularly throughout the season.
Crocosmia are hardy down to USDA zones 5-6, and will reliably overwinter most years down to these zones. Mulching the plants well in fall can increase the likelihood of overwintering. In colder or borderline zones, the corms can also be lifted and stored overwinter in a cool, dark place to ensure retention for future years.
