Description

This snow crocus, chrysanthus 'Blue Pearl', has mesmerizingly beautiful pearlesque flowers which will emerge in your spring garden before spring does! Recognised as early flowering, Snow crocuses have been known to emerge so early it’s tempting to reclassify them as late winter rather than spring flowering. While the dainty flowers are occasionally not up to the onslaught of very bad weather, which sometimes means their beauty can be short-lived, it is worth taking a chance on this pearly stunner with its brushed on watercolour blend of blue and white petals emerging from a base of sunshine orange. Blue Pearl corms produce multiple flowers.
