Quite the most elegant and delicate looking fragrant crocus with creamy ‘clotted cream’ petals opening to reveal bright orange centres and a creamy yellow throat. At around 10cm in height, Crocus Species Cream Beauty is raring to flower, often the first of the crocuses to do so in February, and is therefore attractive to bees wanting to harvest some early pollen. The crocus chrysanthus varieties often flower earlier than traditional crocus and are also known as the ‘snow crocus’. It has been given the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for its good all-round garden performance and is ideal for naturalising.
