Crocosmia 'Prometheus'

The handsome old montbretia variety 'Prometheus' had to be omitted when the recently posted group photograph of montbretias was made. Although it was in bloom, all of the available flowers were distorted (by the heat?).

In order to give a good view of the flower face on, one was plucked and re-positioned on the inflorescence in such a way that it faced upward. In its natural position, the flower would have to be lifted to see the interior blotches.
