Crocus cancellatus

Crocus cancellatus var. cilicicus

Hardy Corm

Originating from Turkey, this superb species crocus is very easy to grow, yet still remains unusual and sought after. Delicate looking flowers force their way through the soil surface ahead of the foliage, to reveal violet blue petals chased with heavy veining. For maximum impact, plant Crocus cancellatus in large swathes throughout borders, gravel gardens and rockeries, or enjoy a container filled with their pretty blooms right outside your back door. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 5cm (2"). Bulb size: 8/9.

Grow crocus in any well drained garden soil in sun or semi shade. Autumn flowering crocus bulbs should be planted from midsummer to autumn, in large clumps at a depth of 10cm (4") and at a distance of 7cm (3") apart. Alternatively grow them in containers or naturalised in grass.
Allow the strap like foliage to die back naturally after flowering. Avoid mowing areas of grass where crocus are naturalised until they have completely died back.
