Many consider Crocus 'Herald' to be outstanding—on two fronts. First, it is often regarded as being the earliest crocus of any to come in to flower. This means that in a sheltered or sunny garden, they could be flowering in late January. Second, the typical goblet-shaped flowers of Crocus 'Herald' have arguably the greatest colour contrast of any crocus! The blooms are essentially pale primrose yellow, with a deeper yellow centre, but the outer petals are nearly completely plum-purple with a yellow edge. This stunning combination looks particularly attractive when seen en masse. Its leaves are dark green and grass-like, each with a silvery, central stripe. 

Crocus 'Herald' flowers at a time when most other garden plants are still dormant, so its drama will pack a real punch in beds, borders, patio containers or when planted in drifts or naturalised in lawns! Also, consider planting it in a window box for a welcoming late-winter and early spring show—to be viewed at close quarters!
