Crocus pulchellus

Crocus pulchellus

Pulchellus means pretty, and this relative of the more common Autumn Crocus, C. speciosus, is just that. Of a paler lilac with purple veins and a shorter yellow throat, C. pulchellus is a delicate opaline goblet right out of a fairy tale. Plant big drifts, in a low ground cover for support.

Perhaps because the sun is so low in the sky after the autumn equinox, the blooms of fall Crocus positively glow in the landscape. They appear between September and January (depending on your climate) on stems 3-6in tall and have the same refined goblet-shaped flowers of their spring cousins.

We ship fall Crocus in September. The bulbs must be planted right away so they may go about the business of rooting and preparing to flower, a process that generally takes 4-6 weeks. Fall Crocus grow best in a sunny, protected site. For more information on Crocus care, click on "Growing Guide & Tips".
