GENERAL DESCRIPTION

“Crocus zonatus” is a small herbaceous perennial that grows from a bulb-like storage organ known as a corm, “crocus zonatus” has long-tubed rosy/lilac flowers with creamy-yellow throats, opening in autumn, the narrow green leaves developing in late winter.

This is a stunning autumn-flowering crocus which is ideal for naturalising in a dry, sunny spot in the garden.
“crocus zonatus” has received the royal horticultural society’s award of garden merit (agm) which is for plants of outstanding excellence.

Grow “crocus zonatus” in full sun in rich, well drained soil. The corms flower best if planted at a depth of several times their height. Shallowly planted bulbs often divide into many small, non-flowering corms after the first years bloom. Dig and replant the corms in late summer every 3 or 4 years.

Plants are sterile and so cannot be propagated by seed. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the lawn until after the leaves have died back. “crocus zonatus” is attractive to bees, butterflies and birds and is also resistant to deer.
