Crocus chrysanthus ‘Herald’
One of the earliest flowers
Spectacular golden crocus with purple brushed on the outside of the petals. Very early flowering, probably the first crocus you will see in your garden.
Looks just as good while the flowers are furled in bi-coloured tubes before opening to the sun.
Height: 10 cm
Light: full sun
Soil: sand, clay, loam, chalk – well draining, gritty, moderately fertile
Bulb size: 5cm+
Care: plant 10cm deep in autumn. Plant in naturalistic-looking clusters. If planting in grass, do not mow until foliage has died off.
