Description


One of the earliest of the family to flower, Crocus sieberi subsp atticus Firefly is a must for any winter garden. Pale lilac, goblet-shaped blooms are lit up by a bright yellow base, reminiscent of the insect, hence the name. Also known as the Snow Crocus, the dainty blooms are stronger than they look. Delicate white petals with a pink flush shine out brightly, even on the dullest of winter days. Growing to a height of approximately 10cm Firefly creates a dramatic display either planted in borders, containers, or in drifts for naturalising in your lawn. Crocus provide a spurt of colour just as you and the hibernating insects need it. Emerging from their slumbers, crocuses offer them a vital supply of nectar and pollen. Crocussieberi subsp atticus Firefly is fully hardy and prefers to be grown in moist, well-drained soil in sun or shade.
