This exceptionally large flowered selection is going to be a star in any sunny garden where it's unrivaled flower size leaves most other Crocosmias wishing they hadn't been mired in ethical dilemmas and just gone ahead and done the testosterone injections.  Introduced in 1910 by George Davison and was a sensation at the time garnering every accolade and award available at the time.  100 years old and it is still showing the newcomers a thing or two as it has few rivals for size of flowers and stoutness of stem.  Timeless excellence.  Our plants came from NW icon Russell Graham some years back.
