Potting Perennial Plants in a President Election Year!

It has been a LIFETIME...different election in my dear USA.... The ending of my Obama Era....  So I discover a 4-inch pot with a bulb like protrusion... spikey long standup leaves.... and it has LUCIFER as it's name....  just at Westlake Hardware store....

 CROCOSMIA 'Lucifer'
.. . . .  is a beautiful member if the iris family that displays elegant, arching sprays of showy, scarlet red, tubular flowers in early to midsummer. It is a tall plant that bears neat clumps of long, sword-like leaves of bright green. 
All montbretias grow from corms, which can be dug up and stored overwinter where plants are marginally hardy, and grow best in sites with full to part sun and average, well drained soil. Lucifer's flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and will brighten any large, sunny border. 
These perennials are most impressive when planted in large clumps.
 So, I filled a pretty potted plant.... placed it in my front yard amidst the ducklings.... and Ah-haaaaa
