The plant is Crocosmia 'Bright Eyes'. It's a corm (like a little bulb) and blooms in the later part of summer. August/September here in Vancouver. Hummingbirds love this plant and this particular cultivar blooms a really long time. Plant in full sun! There are lots of cultivars to choose from. 'Lucifer' is another great one that's taller and has red flowers. Google it and you'll get more info. You can purchase it as a corm to plant or nurseries have plants in bloom for sale in July, August , Sept. I hope this helps!

Thank you Sooo much! I am familiar with 'Lucifer' and was thinking they must be in the same family.

that's a great-looking planter and definitely will show off any plant combinations to change with the season -- I can see mixing plants with various colored squash - Halloween..and yes, X'mas holiday with bright red poinsettias!
