Product Description

Large-flowered Striped Crocus, the name says it all! Providing early colour, the cup-shaped blooms are abundant and striking in  silvery lilac and dark striped petals.

This wonderful variety is great for container displays on your balcony or decking. In fact, these crocuses will grow almost anywhere in the garden too, even happy in light shade and prefer a free-draining soil.

Good for naturalizing as they return reliably and are perfect for planting under shrubs and trees. Leave the bulbs in the ground after the flowers have died back, and they will reward you with bigger, better displays, each year for many years to come.

Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs, size 7/8 ready for planting in autumn.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • For a natural look, throw a handful onto a grassy area and then plant them where they fall.
  • Which way up? Pointy end up and the flat end at the bottom, but don't worry, they soon right themselves in the ground anyway.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Romance crocus bulbs:

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they'll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back and they'll come back bigger and better each year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.


 

Aftercare Advice for your crocus:

  • Spring-flowering bulbs should be planted in the autumn for displays next season. This allows them to establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • Water frequently and if in posts ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.
  • Use a good quality potting compost such as our premium professional compost for the best results.
     


 

Cutting your crocuses back:

  • Leave foliage to die back naturally after flowering, and if naturalised in grass, don't cut it until the leaves have yellowed.
  • This allows as much energy as possible to go back into the bulbs for the following year. Only cut back the foliage once it has turned yellow or brown.
