  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: gritty, poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: late September to late October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 7/8

    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

      Comments about Crocus speciosus 'Conqueror':

      I have used this Crocus as part of a newly-planted smallish border composed of blue-flowered plants flowering in progression. Time will tell whether it proves successful.

      These are the most bee-pleasing of all, because the goblet of petals traps warm air, and warmth helps nectar flow. Smaller-flowered crocus flower first, usually by February, and among the stars are the purple and white Crocus 'Ladykiller' and the silver
