A True Blue Pearl of the Garden

  • Early Spring Blooms
  • Award-Winning (AGM 1993)
  • Iridescent Blue Petals with Golden Throats
  • Great in Containers

As legends go, this crocus comes back to life every spring, roaming gardens, haunting gardeners with its ghostlike beauty. Well, that might not be entirely accurate... The Blue Pearl Crocus does have an ethereal glow. It also does return to life spring after spring. As for haunting, though, most gardeners celebrate the emergence of these pearlescent beauties.

The Blue Pearl Crocus is by far one of the most attractive crocus varieties. Its goblet-shaped bloom glows against its green foliage. Its outer petals have deckled blue centers that transition to a pale blue around the edges. The satin-like quality of these petals makes this petite pearl of a flower seem to glow.

And this Blue Pearl has a pearl of its own hidden tucked into its center. As the Blue Pearl Crocus's petals slowly open, its golden throat becomes visible.

These crocuses are highly desirable as rare blue beauties. As some of the first flowers to emerge in spring, they're a sight for sore eyes.

Blue Pearl Crocuses make for an opulent show when planted en masse. They stand out against taller foliage and look great grouped in a rockery, scattered along a cottage garden path, or around your mailbox or hardscaping. Many agree that the Blue Pearl Crocus also shows best as a woodland planting where the woods meet your yard.

It is once in a blue moon that you will find such a lovely and reliable crocus variety. If you're bored with violets and yellows, the Blue Pearl Crocus will cure your blues. Order yours now and prepare for your fall planting.

We will ship your bulbs based on the correct planting time for your area.
