We love the colouring of this beautiful little crocus, as while the majority of the flower petals are a soft lilac, the outermost petals are even paler (near white), but have a feathered deep purple flash along their length. They look wonderful when they appear in late winter - particularly when planted in generous drifts, or popping up in a container on the windowsill.
- Garden care: Plant bulbs in naturalistic drifts 10cm (4in) deep in September or October.
