    Very beautiful, goblet shaped, rich violet blue flowers appear from late September to late October, and are followed by narrow, mid-green leaves. This popular autumn-flowering crocus is ideal for naturalising in a sunny shrub border among deciduous shrubs or for scattering through the lawn. Often the earliest autumn crocus to bloom, it soon increases to form large colonies.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs in naturalistic drifts 10cm (4in) deep in July to September in gritty, well-drained soil. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the lawn until after the leaves have died back.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
