Crocus tommasinianus

The first Crocus of the season have finally appeared, this diminutive bulb is Crocus tommasinianus. Planted in small drifts through this front garden between perennials and grasses they will naturalise and increase year on year. Their soft mauve colour stands out beautifully in the soft winter light.
