The rounded flowers of deep cream fade to ivory at the edges. Inside, they are a creamy white, culminating in a lemon yellow centre and the bright orange anthers almost glow against the tepals. On the reverse the base has a strong purple flare. Each Crocus ‘Cream Beauty’ corm produces up to four blooms in a season.

Snow Crocus have a graceful elegance that is hard to surpass. The blooms have a whispered fragrance that calls to the spring in the dying days of winter.

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 impress in rockeries, beds, lawn plantings and pots. Plant in a sunny spot with well drained soil. Crocus will tolerate light shade, such as under deciduous trees, especially in warmer zones, but they need the sun to open their petals. They should be kept cool (by shade or mulch) in summer.

Snow Crocus bulbs don't need to be lifted every year, so you can allow them to naturalise and only dig and divide as required when they become crowded after four or five years. It is a good idea to protect new growth from slugs and snails. Fertilise your Crocus annually in winter and or spring depending on your soil.
