Hardy Lucifer Crocosmia?
Last fall, after I dug up my glads and crocosmia, I forgot to take them in. Stupid, because I have severe squirrel problems! Anyhow - the next morning I went out and found that most of them had disappeared, I assumed as squirrel food.
Now, I'm finding glads and crocosmia comming up everywhere! The beasties obviously burried a lot of them, instead of eating them.
In my area glads are not reliably hardy - they need a lot of mulch or a good microclimate - but their survival isn't that out of line. Crocosmia is not supposed to be hardy at all here. So... Was it the mild winter we had that allowed them to survive? Or are they hardier than widely believed? Anyone else in zone 5a leave them in the ground?
