Large Flowering Crocus Vanguard

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



An elegant and award-winning Crocus, ‘Vanguard’ is an early flowering and vigorous variety which will naturalise with ease in the correct spot.

Blooming for around 3 weeks in February and March, this Giant Dutch Crocus bears gorgeous goblets of muted mauve and silver which will glow like precious jewels in the spring garden.

It is little wonder that Crocus ‘Vanguard’ has been granted a prestigious Award of Garden Merit by The Royal Horticultural Society for excellent garden performance, reliability and of course, handsome looks.

Drought tolerant and hardy, these bulbs thrive in full sun and well-drained, fertile soil and look fabulous when planted en masse, as a swathe of colour.  Pollinator-friendly Dutch Crocus can also be grown in pots and containers for the patio or garden table, where their intricate beauty can be appreciated up close.
