A true exotic whose ravishing, lilac-blue petals are illuminated at the base by broad bands of golden yellow and white, all presented on striking dark brown stems. If that isn't enough, it's also fragrant. Planted in quantity, 'Tricolor' produces the same enchanting effect as a Crocus mixture, but all at once. Forced in a bowl, individual blooms are as intriguing as Orchids. This is a unique look in Crocus that will be around for a long time. Winner of the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. Early.
