One of the first of the year, heralding the arrival of spring. This so-called Balkan crocus will spruce up your post-winter garden with the lightest shades of blue and you'll sometimes even get multiple flowers per plant.
Hardy, it propagates beautifully all by itself and you'll soon find it popping up all over your garden.
Dig them into your lawn or your flower beds and that spring-feeling will arrive just a little bit quicker.
