Crocus Blooms


Here are the first blooms of the season. These are the Fuscotinctus Snow Crocus (Crocus chrysanthus).
Use the unusual crocus to provide cheery spots of colour during the drab end-of-winter months! A true beauty with exotic striping on each outside petal. The exterior of the outer segments are yellow, striped and feathered with plum purple over a lemon-yellow ground. The stripes continue down the flower tube.
