(3-4” tall) Spring Beauty Crocus (Crocus mimimus), a sweet, miniature crocus that flowers in late winter or early spring, is described perfectly by both its names. Light violet blooms 3-4” tall are marked with deeper plum-colored flames on the outer petals which contrast strikingly against yellow stamens. Petals do not tend to splay open, which also adds to their charm. The foliage is deep green and grass-like, with a characteristic silver stripe down the mid-vein. Due to its early bloom and small size, Spring Beauty Crocus is a great choice for naturalizing in lawns where the foliage can be mown a little earlier than other larger flowering crocus. Spring Beauty is also a rock garden favorite due to its size, and can be grown in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Plant 4” deep and 3-4” apart. Why not provide for your early pollinators with this sweet spring beauty?!
