Crocus

Early flowering, this beautiful variety of Crocus provides welcome colour during some of the shortest days.

These little gems are some of the first bulbs to poke their heads above the soil in the new year, with large goblet-shaped flowers surrounded by narrow grass-like leaves. Petals shine like satin, opening almost flat on bright days to bask in the wintery sun revealing saffron coloured, pollen rich centres that are loved by bees brave enough to forage during the coldest months. This lovely Crocus looks great planted in large groups in shallow pots as well as in grassy areas, under trees and borders. Crocus 'Cream Beauty' lives up to its name and never fails to raise a smile as the leaves and buds spear their way through the ground and open to creamy white flowers - a sure sign that spring is not far away.

Perfect for naturalising in borders, rock gardens and grass areas where they will increase in numbers each year.

Plant Care & Advice

Crocus will grow well in sun or part shade and in soil that's not too wet in winter. Either remove the pot and plant into well prepared soil by digging a hole twice the size of the pot or simply plunge the pot into a border or larger container and remove it once the flowers have been enjoyed. Plant bulbs during autumn in holes 2-3 times the depth of the bulb. Allow the flowers and leaves to die back naturally. Because Crocus die back after flowering (known as 'summer dormant') they require very little watering but keep containers watered in dry weather whilst they are flowering.
