    I understand that Emily McKenzie is not at all hardy, but very delightful.

    Some are "evasive", some are definitely invasive.
    He calls her the chocolate girl

    There's the common Montbretia, which may be what you have, and Lucifer is also fine. Crocosmias are tough. They'll be fine to plant just now as long as your ground is suitable.  :)

    Not sure where you are @cowslip, but E.McK is very hardy here, and we don't exactly have a balmy climate  ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
