The oldest cultivated species (I think) dating back to the mid-1800's and due to it's very wide distribution as a woodland plant throughout much of sub-Saharan Africa such as the Congo and on down to South Africa.  Crocosmia as woodland shade plants muddles my preconceptions but expands my planting areas.  Nice pendant yellow-orange flowers.
