Dramatically effective with deep lilac to purple hues and yellow anthers. The easiest of the autumn flowering crocuses to grow and they look lovely amongst a sprinkling of fallen leaves. These bulbs react to the lowering of the soil temperatures and the presence of moisture by flowering in the late autumn before their leaves emerge.
