Is crocosmia completely restricted in ak

Asked August 15, 2020, 4:23 PM EDT

I love crocosmia and was considering trying to grow some in my garden. However, some nurseries say shipping to Alaska is restricted. Is crocosmia considered invasive here? If so, are there any varieties considered acceptable? Thanks!

I am not aware of any restrictions on crocosomia in Alaska. I suggest asking the seller what the restrictions for Alaska are, and contacting the Alaska Division of Agriculture. It could be a disease restriction, or that they can't clean a restricted weed out of the seed well enough to get it here.
