Description

This multiple award winner is still popular more than 80 years after its introduction!
Extraordinarily colored, small-cupped flower is light mauve and shaded in grey on the outside. When its six petals open, the inside is paler but no less appealing. Very early and rich flowering. This crocus is excellent for perennializing.
