Crocus olivieri subsp. balansae 'Orange Monarch' is a little different from your average Crocus. The goblet-shaped, orange blooms are streaked with tawny brown markings on the outside of each petal, creating an intriguing marbled effect. Despite their small size, these vibrant bulbs create a big impact in late winter and early spring when few other plants are able to brave the cold with such a showy display. Plant them in window boxes and patio pots, or in bold groups at the base of trees and shrubs. For a really natural effect just scatter a handful of bulbs and plant them where they fall. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 5cm (2").

How to Grow
Grow crocus in any well drained garden soil in sun or semi shade. Spring flowering crocus bulbs should be planted during the 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.
More Info
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.
