A gorgeous and truly elegant snow crocus, creamy white with charming golden centers. An added bonus is the intense honey fragrance awaiting those brave enough to get down on hands and knees to admire this beautiful cultivar.

Snow Bunting is aptly named as the flowers are a clean, clear, stark white. Golden throats can be seen inside when fully open. New for me this spring as I planted it last fall. I expect this snow crocus to multiply well.
