Thanks for the ID, Phil, they were growing wild in Scotland, they have little bulbs as roots. Iíll remember Crocosmia as itís a bit like crocus 😎

Montbretia was my Dad's favourite flowers and always reminds me of him. It does grow and spread but is so beautiful.

Lovely capture Dave.

Interesting to discover new things here - I found that the plant is native to S. Africa and was imported to U.K. from France in the 1880s 🪴

I have this in my garden, it has spread so much it is stopping my dahlias growing 🙃
Think I am going to dig it up in the spring. 💪🏼😉
Lovely shot Dave 😃

Was reading on the net, Diane, apparently itís illegal to plant in some wild places as it takes over. Strange plant 🌻

I can vouch for it spreading Dave. In only one year it has grown to at least six times its space that it originally was.
Its got to go!

Great subdued light shot.
I have lots of Montbretias in my garden every year and they do spread like crazy but their leaves are beautiful as well as the flowers.

Crocosmia, I love it as it is very hard to kill, plants have to be robust to survive in my garden. Does spread mind, as others have said. Smile
