Crocosmia in Georgia

South Africa invades the southeastern US!

Orange crocosmia, blooming wild and creek-side, on the East Decatur Greenway, in DeKalb County, Georgia, USA. 1 July 2022.
Crocosmia —also known as montbretia— is a small genus of flowering plants in the iris family, Iridaceae. It is native to the grasslands of southern and eastern Africa, ranging from South Africa to Sudan. The plants have colorful inflorescences of 4 to 20 vivid red and orange flowers on a horizontally branched stem, flowering from early summer well into fall.
