Autumn Flowering Crocus Speciosus Conqueror
Brilliant, violet-blue, goblet-shaped flowers appear during September and October on Crocus speciosus ‘Conqueror’.
A fabulous choice of autumn crocus for naturalising in open spaces of grass or near the front of a large border, against a backdrop of foliage such as lush ferns. Invaluable for adding a splash of late season colour and attracting pollinators, speciosus ‘Conqueror’ is one of the earliest varieties of autumn flowering crocus to bloom.
Leaves appear in spring and fade during the summer months, before the elegant flowers bloom atop bare stems.
A sunny position and fertile, well-drained soil is essential for these wonderful bulbs to thrive.
