This species which originates in northern Italy, is one of the earliest flowering crocuses. It produces flowers in a range of attractive shades of purple and lilac, many with striped outer petals. For a bold effect plant them in pots and move them into a prominent position as they come into flower. They also look good naturalised in drifts among herbaceous plants and deciduous shrubs and trees.
