    Shades of purple, lilac-blue, striped, orange and white make up this lush mix of goblet-shaped flowers that appear in March and April above slender, strap-shaped leaves. These vigorous, large-flowered Dutch crocuses are perfect for naturalising in the lawn or allowing to meander through the front of a sunny, well-drained site. To achieve a naturalistic effect broadcast small handfuls of bulbs, planting them where they fall.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

      Comments about Crocus mixed colour collection:

      I'm trying to lay down a carpet of colour in early spring so crocuses should do it. Pricewise these were value for money. I've not had any problem with these plants coming up and I didn't take any special care in planting except depth. On the negative side yellow does appear to be the dominant colour in the 'selection' and the first to raise their heads (just starting to show now).
