Its fleshy roots (corms) should be planted 2-4" deep and 6-8" apart. Crocosmia will quickly grow and overcrowd itself, and offsets of the original plant may be lifted and moved. In zones 1-5, corms should be lifted and stored indoors over the winter, much like cannas or dahlias. In zones 6-7, a deep winter mulch will help to protect the roots and increase the plant's chances of survival. No special treatment is necessary in zones 8-9.
