Product Description - Crocus Barrs Purple

Crocus Barrs Purple

Barr's Purple crocus (Crocus Tommasinianus 'Barr's Purple', Crocus tommasinianus 'Barr's Purple'). New! Crocus Barr's Purple belongs to the group of Botanical crocuses. It grows up to 10 cm in height. It begins to bloom early, like all wild crocuses, in February-March. And, if you plant it this autumn, it will greet you in early spring with wonderful colours.

Excellent characteristics of the variety:

  • It is the earliest crocus. It blooms two weeks earlier than its counterparts - large-flowered crocuses.
  • The rich amethyst-purple colour with a pale centre and golden-orange anthers captivates with its beauty.
  • This variety has graceful six-petalled flowers that open and close on sunny days.
  • The size of the flower is about 5 cm in diameter.
  • When they open wide, they take on a star shape.

It is a perennial ephemeral plant that belongs to the Cockscomb family. Other names for the species include Tommasini saffron, Neapolitan saffron, and Tomasini crocus. This is one of the cold-resistant crocuses! It thrives in the wild in Hungary and the Balkan Peninsula. This crocus blooms in late winter - early spring for 3-4 weeks (and in May it begins a dormant period).


This plant is often called "Snow Crocus" for obvious reasons. It blooms well before the Dutch hybrids awaken. Therefore, you can admire the long flowering of crocuses if you plant them both. The petals are narrow, pointed. The perianth tube is light, short, vertical, stalk-like. The leaves are shiny, narrow, dark green, about 7 cm long. They begin to grow from the bulb during flowering and fully develop after flowering. The bulbs are oblong-spherical, slightly flattened. They usually produce 3 flowers each.

It is suitable for mass planting on lawns, under trees, in rock gardens or for creating compositions in containers.
