Description

A distinguished variety with large rosy purple, fragrant flowers, each with a white heart and orange anthers, these plants are often misnamed "Autumn Crocus" because of their autumn blooming, when they produce large cup-shaped flowers on naked stems, and much later, foliage which resembles hosta leaves, appearing in the spring. They do best in rich, well-drained soil and partial shade.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
