The scoop on Crocus Tricolor

Looking at the blooms, it's easy to see how crocus Tricolor got it's name; the pencil-gold base blends into bright white and then into a pretty purple. Decidedly jazzy and still ridiculously easy to grow. The petals on this crocus are softly pointed, not rounded and bowl-like which is typical for members of this family.

Why Grow Snow Crocuses?

  • Snow crocuses produce some of the first bright sparks of color in spring gardens
  • These tough little flowers can manage freezing temperatures and snow, and still bloom beautifully
  • Plant with giant Dutch crocuses for weeks of early color year after year

This crocus is one of a handful that are fragrant. And, it has earned the Royal Botanical Society's Award of Garden Merit. If you're looking for early garden color but want something a bit unusual, these are just the ticket.
