Sieberi Tricolor has 6 large petals with very distinct colourations, the exterior reveals a glimpse of these beautiful colours. Lovely shades of light lavender to purple on the uppermost part of the petal, often paler purples on the interior, and then moving towards the base a pure white boundary and then finally golden oranges to yellows in the base and throat, similar golden orange colours in the stigma and anthers. Multiple, open goblet-shaped flowers form from each corm with slender, upright grass-like foliage.

Early spring bloom, dwarf Sieberi Tricolor is a botanical Crocus that is very eye-catching and helps bring the message that spring is coming. Plant together for groups of tri-coloured blooms of purples, whites and yellows in beds, borders, edging, rockeries or use in pots and containers for accenting walkways patio areas or window sills. Great for naturalising lawns, under shrubs and trees.

Crocus announce that spring is coming and some of the earliest flowers to bloom. Crocus develop from a tuber called “corms”, the technical name for the flower bulb. Spring Crocus are some of the earliest blooms of the season and have been known to come out even when snow is still on the ground. Easter colours of the Crocus include a rainbow of rich lavender purples, showy pinks and golden yellow hues. Crocus leaves are generally green and strap or thick grass-like in appearance.

A smaller flowering plant, most Crocus blooms have average heights of 10 cm. Crocus flowers typically have a cup or goblet shape with variations of how open or closed the petals are. There are many species which are highly appreciated for their fragrance. The Royal Horticultural Society recognizes a significant number of Crocus for their positive characteristics of not only their beauty and fragrance, but also for their attractiveness to pollinators like bees and birds. One of the most famous Crocus varieties is Crocus Sativus, better known as Saffron Crocus, from which the stamen are harvested and used in cooking.

One of the most important aspects of planting Crocus is proper drainage. Due to their heritage of growth in mountainous areas, like the alps, Crocus can grow well in gritty soils that are only poor to moderately fertile. They will do well in fertile soils, but the critical aspect is that while the soil can be moist, is must not be water-laden or soggy. Crocus prefer areas with full sun to partial shade and will do poorly in completely shaded areas.
