RE: Propagating crocosmia

don't think so, they do grow easily from seed if available OR from the corms ("bulbs") that they (or at least some species and hybrids) normally produce underground spreading to form large clumps in a few years from a single initial plant---dig up the clump and you should get lots of little plants.
