Botanical name: Crocus
Flowering mainly in late winter to early spring, crocuses offer cheer in borders, seasonal containers or planted in lawns to create colour carpets. In addition to the spring flowering cultivars, another group of crocuses flower in autumn. For the connoisseur, some species are best grown in troughs or alpine houses.
