Description

An unusual bi-colour form, with a soft yellow-apricot inside and dusted purple outer petal surface. This is an old variety from the 1950's, which has stood the test of time.

Crocuses are often the first flowers in a garden and feel like the true cheerleaders of spring. Delicate, yet easy to grow, lovely closed up as a goblet and even lovelier, fully starily open. They will cheer up your February and March garden, at a generally grey time of year.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Care Tips

Can be naturalized easily in grass but wait until the foliage has died down in June to cut the grass.
