Crocus tommasinianus

Crocus tommasinianus or also known as Early Crocus is from the Iridaceae family of plants which are deciduous perennials that grow from corms. Crocus tommasinianus is an early bloomer it has long tubed flowers with long pointy leaves.

The flowers are usually purple, I saw a lot of them on my early spring walk in Kew Gardens. Crocus tommasinianus is native to Europe and it grows to about 10 cm tall. It grows in the sun and poor to the fertile soil. Squirrels like the corms so watch out!

About Dino

Dino
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
