The Autumn Crocus ‘Conqueror’ (Crocus speciosus) is an autumn-flowering crocus that produces stunning violet blue blooms throughout September and October.
Perfect for planting in a sunny shrub border surrounded by deciduous plants, or scattered throughout a lawn in late July to September. They should be planted around 10cm deep in gritty, well-drained soil. More often than not it is the first crocus to bloom in Autumn, and will quickly naturalise to create a large colony.
The goblet-shaped blue flowers and bold orange anthers are perfect for pollinating insects. Create a haven for endangered bee species and be rewarded with vibrant floral displays.
