    This early spring-flowering crocus is perfect for naturalising in grass. It soon increases to form elegant colonies of slender, deep purplish-blue flowers, which open in February or March the moment the sun appears. The delicate flowers are somewhat deceptive, since it stands up well in wind and rain.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs in naturalistic drifts 10cm (4in) deep in September or October. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the lawn until after the leaves have died back.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
