Gorgeous golden petals with rich maroon feathering. Each bloom is around 7cm across. Snow Crocus ‘Gypsy Girl’ is a strong variety that multiplies well.
Crocus chrysanthus are also known as Snow Crocus or Botanical Crocus.
Snow Crocus ‘Gypsy Girl’ grows best in Cool to Mediterranean climates where they look fantastic in rockeries, beds and pots. Plant in a sunny spot with drained soil.
Snow Crocus ‘Gypsy Girl’ will tolerate light shade, such as under deciduous trees, especially in more temperate zones, but needs sun in winter so the flowers will open.
Snow Crocus bulbs don’t need to be lifted every year, so you can allow them to naturalise and dig and divide after four or five years if flowering wanes. It is a good idea to protect the new growth from slugs and snails - this is easier to check for in pots than among gardens or lawn so if the critters are a problem in your garden take measures in late winter.
Fertilise Snow Crocus ‘Gypsy Girl’ annually in spring as they bloom. They are suitable for planting in pots.
