Description

Snow Crocus- Prins Claus

Crocus chrysanthus

NOT FOR TAS, WA

  • Bicolour purple and white flowers
  • Flowers late winter
  • Low maintenance

Hardy perennial growing to 10cm tall, with strappy green leaves and goblet-shaped flowers in late winter or early spring. The flowers are antique white with  purple on the outside and gold stamens. Suited to growing in containers or mass planting in rockeries, at the front of beds and borders, in lawns and under deciduous trees. The flowers provide an early source of nectar for insects. Corms naturalise easily and are low maintenance once established.

Snow crocus is a hardy perennial native to Hungary, Bulgaria and parts of Turkey. Blooming in late winter, the delicate goblet-shaped flowers come in many different colours and are lightly scented. Each corm produces one to four flowers that open during the day and close at night. The name 'snow crocus' comes from the flowers' ability to emerge through snow in cold climates. Also known as 'Botanical crocus'.
