Gold and violet blue buds open to a soft violet and cream centre. The blooms of Crocus ‘Firefly’ have a glorious, golden heart which is visible inside and out.

It is absolutely stunning from bud to bloom.

Each Crocus 'Firefly' flower is around 10cm tall. Up to three blooms form from each bulb. A small cluster of narrow, deep green leaves surround the blooms. Each leaf has a single, silver stripe.

Species Crocus grow best in Cool to Mediterranean climates where they look fantastic in rockeries, beds and pots. Plant in a winter sun spot with drained soil. Beneath a deciduous tree is ideal.

Species Crocus bulbs don’t need to be lifted every year, so you can allow them to naturalise and only need to dig and divide them after four or five years if flowering wanes. Leaving them in the ground will also mean you will be greeted with blooms a little earlier in the season.

It is a good idea to protect the new growth from slugs and snails. Fertilise Species Crocus annually in early spring as they bloom.
