An unlabelled mixture of these early flowering beauties. Includes catalogue and alternative varieties. Snow Crocus have a graceful elegance that is hard to surpass. The blooms have a soft fragrance and open late in winter, a welcome herald of the spring. The blooms open a little before the well known Dutch Crocus.

Crocus chrysanthus are also known as Snow Crocus or Botanical Crocus. They are much loved for their early colour, heart warming show and ease of care.

Snow Crocus grow best in Cool to Mediterranean climates where they look fantastic in rockeries, beds and pots. Plant the bulbs in a sunny spot with drained soil.

Snow Crocus will tolerate light shade, such as under deciduous trees, especially in more temperate zones, but need sun in winter (the blooms open and close in the light).

Snow Crocus bulbs don’t need to be lifted every year, so you can allow them to naturalise and just 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 annually in spring as they bloom. They are suitable for planting in pots.
