Crocus 'Barr's Purple'

Crocuses are suitable for planting in groups in borders or rock gardens and some species naturalise in grass. All species are hardy to -20C. With many autumn flowering varieties now available, it is likely you will spot crocuses growing for at least six months of the year, from mid-autumn to late spring. 'Barr's Purple' has a silvery sheen to the outside of the purple petals, paler lilac colour inside the flower, and golden-orange stamens

Planting

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Plant crocus corms in Autumn for flowering the following Spring. Crocus corms have a flattened base, and slightly pointed top. They should be planted in moist, free-draining soil that has been enriched with organic compost or well-rotted manure, in a sunny, or partially sunny site. Plant the corms before the first frost.

 

Flowering

From Late Winter TO Early Spring

Crocus flowers are amongst the very first flowers to appear in late Winter or early Sring
