Description

This is a small, delicate and beautiful crocus, a pale and delicious Jersey cream, with soft flushes of apricot and the lightest feathering of purple on the outer petal surface. It is short but strong, with the brilliant orange anthers a lovely contrast to the petal colour, with a gentle, sweet scent.

Care Tips

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