Although Crocus are classically thought of as spring flowers, there are a whole range of wild species and selections, which flower throughout the autumn.
The earliest of these start to flower in the dying days of July continuing into August, at which point more species start to flower. With careful selection of different species, their flowering periods can be overlapped until Christmas, at which time the Spring species start to flower.
We offer a wide range of autumn-flowering species Crocus. Cultivation of these presents no problems, and they do well if given a fertile, well-drained, loam-based compost in full sun. With global warming, these are becoming easier and easier to cultivate in northern gardens also. A few need some shade, and leafier conditions, this is noted individually under species needing it.
Autumn flowering Crocus need to be ordered early for flowering the same season, and are usually sent before other bulbs.
Order from Autumn list only.
