Description
 
One of the truly elegant cultivars and one that will be the toast of the garden.  This is one of 5 surviving C. xcrocosmoides bred by Max Leichtlin of Baden-Baden Germany before 1895 that is still in cultivation. A true heirloom cultivar.  Tall stems with fingers of flowers held out like a ladies hand extended to be kissed.  Refined orange tepals nicely spaced reflects its obvious confident sense of self and of place which speaks to its heritage of Teutonic thoroughness and simmering superiority.
