Crocus tommasinianus 'Barr's Purple'

Crocus varieties to grow

Browse our pick of the best crocus to grow for both spring and autumn flowers.

Cheery crocuses are often the first flowers to pop up in spring.

As well as the more familiar spring flowering crocuses, you can also grow autumn-flowering crocuses such as Crocus speciosus and visually similar species like Colchicum autumnale. While not closely related to the Crocus genus, colchicums are equally easy to grow and look lovely naturalised in grass, providing a similar effect to true crocuses.
