A seedling raised in Cornwall by John Hogan and named in 1994. The parents were Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora
and 'Lana de Savary'. 'Lana de Savary' is itself one of his hybrids, from Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora
and Alan Bloom's 'Lucifer'.
I am rather fond of this hybrid because of a trivial personal connection. Back in the days when I still
ran a nursery, I think I sold John his original stock of 'Lucifer'. He had brought some very dwarf
Aubrieta hybrids over to show me, and went away with the Crocosmia as well.
