Description

Oval petals in a beautiful vivid shade of purple form a cup shaped flower on a short fleshy stalk. Striking bright orange stamens. Often viewed as the herald of spring crocus tommasinianus varieties flower earlier than the traditional large flowering Crocus and are sometimes referred to as the 'snow crocus'. A pure delight in early spring that, if left undisturbed, will multiply year after year.
