Snow Crocus

Posted by Newyorkrita (North Shore, Long Island, NY ) on Aug 29, 2014 9:09 PM

A lovely early-blooming species of snow crocus. I planted about 50 Gypsy Girl bulbs late last fall. I do love the golden yellow coloring and the really striking purple stripes along the outside of the blooms.

In my garden Gypsy Girl blooms after my earliest blooming yellow species crocus, Fuscotinctus.
