|Crocosmia 'Prince of Orange'|
In my yard it grows in light shade and also in full sun, and the mass of cheerful orange flowers in the middle of summer are a delight.
It is an easy plant with no pest or disease problems and does not need special maintenance but if you want to keep the grass-like foliage in check you could use string tied to a few bamboo stakes about a foot of the ground or a couple mini fence pieces strategically placed.
After flowering I do not cut the leaves until they start to turn brown, the leaves produce the energy for the corms (small bulbs) to flower next year.
Deer do not like this plant.
