Crocus flowers are normally among the earliest to appear in spring. Their bright colours are a welcome sight, popping up in dormant beds and borders before other plants have started growing. Crocus corms are ideal for naturalising in lawns, rockeries and borders where they multiply naturally over time to create drifts of colour. You can even try growing crocus in containers, mixed with tulips and daffodils for a prolonged display. For help planting Crocus bulbs see our guide to planting bulbs and view our informative video.
Crocus cancellatus (Autumn flowering)
(Crocus cancellatus var. cilicicus)Originating from southern Turkey, this unusual autumn flowering crocus is easy to grow in a pot or in the ground. The blooms emerge ahead of the foliage to reveal pretty blue blooms striped with a rich shade of violet. Crocus cancellatus makes a lovely autumn display when planted en masse beneath deciduous trees, or grown throughout rockeries and gravel gardens. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 5cm (2"). Bulb size: 8/9.
