Crocus are unusual in that they like warm growing conditions and sometimes traditional crocus wait until summer is truly underway before flowering. It isn’t a stretch then to imagine that there are crocus varieties that grow over the summer month and flower in the cooler autumn time. Autumn flowering crocus varieties are actually plentiful and our personal favourites are the Crocus Colchicum Dick Trotter
, the giant crocus
and the bright and sunny crocus Sternbergia Lutea
. One thing is certain, crocus flowers don’t need to be just for spring and can be enjoyed for a good portion of the year with careful planting. It is little wonder that crocus gardens are now becoming highly sought after as crocus can keep your garden in bloom for much longer.
