Crocosmia x crocosmiflora (montbretia)

Camariñas, Gallicia, Spain, August 16, 2009

This is a man-made hybrid of Crocosmia aurea and Crocosmia patsii dating back to 1880, and since then naturalized to various parts of Europe. Both parent Crocosmiae were called Tritoniae in an earlier nomenclature.
