As the name suggests, Crocus sieberi Tricolor produces goblet-shaped flowers that display three gorgeous colours - mauve, white and gold - blooming to let everyone know that spring is on its way. These little beauties are easy to grow and virtually take care of themselves, naturalising so that they'll appear for years to come. Plant en masse, on slopes or banks, beds or borders for a stunning display in the garden, or grow them in pots or containers on the patio for colour up-close. Bees and other little pollinators will be attracted to these crocuses, making your garden an early hive of activity. Crocus sieberi Tricolor has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

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.
