Extend your customers' crocus season with this new species variety! Cloth of Gold, or angustifolius, bears amazingly bright, golden yellow flowers in the very early part of spring (February to March). Planted alongside giant crocus, it creates a very long-lasting springtime display in landscape beds, around the base of a deciduous tree stand, along a sunny border or lining a walkway. The rich purple-bronze accents gives a more dimensional look to the cup-shaped flowers. Species crocus are cold-hardy plants with a bunch-flowering habit that makes them a natural go-to for gardeners that crave a dependably early spring. Blooms often push through snow to make their first appearance.
