Variety: Crocus Queen of the Blues (also known as Grand M'aitre)
Flowering height: 4 ins
Month: March
Clare Bulb Co comment: Often referred to as being a blue crocus, (there is actually as far as we are aware no such colour as blue in the spring crocus family, only autumn crocuses), this variety also has a gray undertone to the petals. Bees like them, (bottom picture).
