Crocus tommasinianus

If you are looking for a crocus to naturalize into a lawn then Crocus tommasinianus is worth consideration.

Not only will it multiply through offsets or bulblets but it will also self seed a lot more readily than most. It is a spring flowering species so plant them in autumn ready for a wonderful show in spring.

This is an early species from Bulgaria through to Hungary. They are also useful in the border, in pots and as additions window boxes.
