Description

Kick off next spring with a game of two halves, a contrasting combo of purple and white crocuses in our 'Match of the Day' crocus collection—comprising Crocus 'Jeanne d'Arc' and Crocus 'Flower Record—come into the field of play from early February. When it comes to early spring colour, crocuses play a strong game and are a great way to get the action started. Compact but strong, these burly players are tough and resilient all-weather types, and not fussy about where they’re put either. Use them to fill pots, borders, tuck into rockeries or naturalise through grass and they’ll put in their well-known determined effort to make a winning show, year after year!

This colour duo of snowy white and rich mauve is always a hit. Mingle them together in groups or swathes and you can expect a perennial treat for the eyes. Not only do they look great, but their nectar-rich trophy blooms are a hot spot for early-emerging bumblebees too.
