GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Crocus vernus is one of the two main species from which most large-flowered garden varieties have been bred. Widely known as dutch crocuses, they are the mainstay of spring colour schemes. There are several varieties and all are vigorous, reliable bulbs that will provide a fine display every spring, even if neglected. This diminutive herbaceous perennial grows from a small bulb-like storage organ known as a corm.

Crocuses are members of the iris family (iridaceae) in spring crocus arise on ankle-high, stalk-like floral tubes. The up-facing blooms have six “petals” (or segments) in two whirls. Goblet-shaped when closed, the blossoms open in bright sun to reveal the three inner segments and the orange-yellow anthers and stigmas. Tufted, grassy, dark green leaves with white midstripes emerge with the flowers and go dormant by late spring.

“remembrance” has large glossy violet-purple flowers.

Grow this beautiful little “bulb” in friable, well-drained soil and full or partial sun (when it is in leaf) they are not formal plants, but look best if grown in irregular patches and drifts. Group dutch crocuses in rock gardens, mixed borders, or turfgrass, or containers. Plants often self-sow. This crocus is also good for forcing in pots.

Plant 7-10 cm deep and 5-10 cm apart.
