Notes:

We had a couple of these plants in Washington State and never knew the name. They required very little care, were planted in a semi-shady location with god ground moisture. The flower stems were 18-24″ with leaves long and graceful about 3/4″ to 1″ wide and pointed tips. We now live in South Dakota and need the name so we can determine if it will survive in this climate.

    It’s a Crocosmia, sometimes commonly known as Montbretia. There are lot’s of different types. I have images of some at http://www.botanicalstockphotos.com/photos-crocosmia-674.htm . They South African and surprisingly tough but I very much doubt they’d survive in South Dakota, though they’re corms so you could lift them for the winter like Gladiolus.
