Snow Crocus 'Cream Beauty' is one of Pam's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:
There's something heart-warming about early spring when snow crocus begin to make an appearance. When 'Cream Beauty' begins to bloom they're announcing to the world that spring is finally on its way. Their creamy colour is a warm reminder of those balmy spring days to come.
This crocus is a bunch bloomer and looks like freshly churned butter. Plant them in drifts for impact, in the grass, rock gardens and containers.
Crocus - the first sign of Spring! What's lovelier than seeing their colourful heads poking through the soil? Snow Crocus are somewhat shorter in stature than the Large Flowering varieties and offer slightly pointed petals. And if you're checking the calendar they usually are one of the very first flowers to bloom in the spring. They come in all the traditional colours of purple, yellow and white as well as a few truly unique combinations. Their narrow leaves have an interesting silvery stripe down the middle. It's fun to watch how the blooms open wide on a sunny day and close up tight during rainy periods or when it cools down at night.
