Colorful orange-crimson cup-shaped blossoms of this easily handled corm can be cut for bouquets.
In October, plant several of the small conns in a bulb-pan in 3 parts soil, 1 part peatmoss, 1 part sand, pressing them in gently. Water thoroughly and place pots under the bench until top growth is evident. Bring up to benches and increase water; keep moist but not wet and they will flower in April.
They like plenty of fresh air and sunlight, although some shading may be necessary during summer.
Gradually reduce watering after flowering to allow foliage to die back naturally. Dry off corms and hold for next season.
T. crocosmaeflora aurantiaca has deep orange flowers.
