Plant details

This is a lovely crocus which is ideal for naturalising in grass. In spring, slender yellow-orange flowers appear, with the outer petals suffused with deep bronze, among the grey-green leaves. This variety has been given an Award of Garden Merit (AGM), which is for plants of outstanding excellence. Grow in poor, gritty, well-drained soil in full sun and plant plant bulbs 8cm to 10cm (3in to 4in) deep in autumn.
