Crocus x cultorum 'Jeanne d'Arc'

Plant details

Crocuses are spring-flowering plants native to Eastern Europe. Blooming from late-winter to early spring, they provide a much-needed source of nectar and pollen for queen bumblebees emerging from hibernation. They are easy to grow and particularly suited to growing in pots, and also naturalising in grass, where they quickly develop large carpets of colour. 

Crocus ‘Jeanne d’Arc’ is from a group of Dutch hybrids that have larger corms and so can be planted deeper in the ground and in thicker grass. It has showy goblet-shaped flowers in white with purple staining.

Plant Crocus ‘Jeanne d’Arc’ corms in autumn in gritty, well-drained soil in full sun. Let the foliage die down completely after flowering and mulch annually with well-rotted compost or manure.
