Yellow Crocus Overview
Crocus flavus is a dwarf, deciduous perennial that grows from a corm. It has broad, linear-shaped leaves and goblet-shaped, scented, deep yellow flowers that appear in spring. Grow Crocus flavus in a sunny position, in well-drained, poor to moderately fertile soil. Whether on a sunny bank, in a border, container, coastal rock garden or a gravel garden, drifts of these Yellow Crocus will add winter cheer, wherever they are planted. They are also a vital food source for pollinating insects that are woken early by strong spring sunshine! Make sure you plant Crocus corms with the pointed end up at a depth of 8-10cm - in early Autumn. These low maintenance perennials will only need watering once - at planting time - and will rot if planted in damp locations.
