Gold and violet blue buds open to a soft violet, and cream centre. The bloom has a glorious, golden heart. Stunning in both stages of bloom. Each bloom is around 10cm tall. Up to three blooms from each bulb. A small cluster of narrow, deep green leaves surround the blooms. Each leaf has a single, silver stripe. Will tolerate more shade than most Crocus. Crocus grow best in cool to temperate climates where they look best in rockeries, beds and pots. Plant in a sunny spot into well drained soil. They will tolerate light shade, such as under deciduous trees, especially in more temperate zones. The bulbs dont need to be lifted every year so allow them to naturalise and only dig and divide after four or five years. Protect new growth from slugs and snails. Fertilise annually in spring. They are suitable for planting in gardens and pots.
