CREAM BEAUTY, 1943Web-Only

“The color of proper Jersey cream,” writes bulb-maven Anna Pavord, but even if you don’t know what she’s talking about it’s easy to like ‘Cream Beauty’. Pale and glowing, it was one of the first crocus introduced by G.H. Hageman, the man who made C. chrysanthus an indispensable part of spring. 3”, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

MAMMOTH YELLOW, 1665Web-Only

C. tommasinianus ROSEUS, 1924Web-Only

A PINK crocus? Not quite, but it’s the closest any crocus gets to pink, a soft lavender-rose that’s utterly unique. Adding to its charms, it opens its petals exuberantly in the sun, making a constellation of tiny pink stars that just gets better every year. Zones 5a-8a(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

C. chrysanthus SNOWBUNTING, 1914Web-Only

“If I could have only one crocus,” the great Southern gardener Elizabeth Lawrence wrote, “it would be this.” She praised its “pearly” buds opening in January in Raleigh, its golden throat, and its “delightful, strong, and musk-like” fragrance. And it’s equally fine up North! Zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

VANGUARD, 1934Web-Only

The earliest-blooming Crocus vernus (and one of our favorite spring treats) this former Russian wildflower opens its platinum outer petals to reveal an exciting contrast – inner petals of soft, luscious amethyst. Zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
