These purple and yellow, goblet-shaped beauties are one of the first crocuses to flower, bringing some much needed late winter colour. Wonderful in beds and rock gardens, but they naturalise very easily under lawns too.
Give them full sun or light shade and any well-drained soil. They are perennials, but they do need to be planted in autumn. If grown in your lawn, you will need to refrain from mowing the area for 6 weeks after the crocuses bloom, or they will not come back the following year as the cormlets will be underdeveloped.
