Crocus

Crocus sativus, also known as saffron crocus, is autumn-flowering, scented and gives you the opportunity to grow your own saffron. It has gorgeous striped, purple petals and will produce eye-catching red stigmas which you can harvest and dry. These easy to grow bulbs will look lovely in a well-drained border, or plant them in a container so that they can decorate your patio, balcony or doorway. They will multiply year on year so that you'll always be able to look forward to a bigger, more spectacular display. This lovely variety will have your garden buzzing with the sounds of bees and other pollinators going about their business. 

Autumn flowering.

Plant Care & Advice

Crocus will grow in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage. They like sunshine but the flowers will last longer in partial shade. Excellent for naturalising (leaving in for flowers year after year). Suitable for rockeries, between shrubs and in any kind of container. Should they become overcrowded after a few years, lift when the foliage has died down, divide and replant. When planting, place wire netting just under the soil surface to prevent mice or squirrels eating the corms.
