Along with Tulips and Daffodils, Crocuses are flowers most commonly associated with spring. Fittingly, “The Song of the Crocus Fairy” is the first poem in Cicely Mary Barker’s classic book, Flower Fairies of the Spring, and crocus fairies are pictured on the cover. This very book has served as inspiration for some of the world’s most notable gardeners.
Crocuses are most often found in Lilac, mauve, yellow and white and there are approximately 80 species and 30 cultivars and they are an absolute sight to see during a spring shower. Be sure to keeps your eyes out for these beauties through the month of April!
