When the last days of winter begin to fade, garden pros and homeowners alike are thrilled to see these delicate, pale blue blooms emerge to signal the spring season. Sometimes even pushing up through the snow, Species Crocus Tommasinianus (or Tommies) are among the earliest varieties to emerge each year. Every finely textured, cup-shaped flower bears unique silvery edges alongside lovely purple flames for a delightful two-tone effect. Tommies make striking presentations planted in groups along borders, under trees, in rock gardens or as an early-season nourishment source for local pollinators. Plant bulbs in partly shaded sites for best results. Bulb size: 5+ cm.
