Crocus 'Violet Queen'

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 'Violet Queen' is a beautiful cultivar, bearing deep violet flowers. Plant corms in autumn in gritty, well-drained soil in full sun.
