Outstanding Qualities

Crocus are a harbinger of spring and bring a burst of color to the garden in very late winter to early spring. This hybrid cultivar is easy to grow and long-lived with goblet-shaped flowers that are golden with a splash of burgundy on the outer petals. The wispy green foliage, with a thin silvery median, emerges right behind the flowers and expands as the blooms fade, then goes dormant in early summer making them quite drought tolerant.
