Springtime : Dutch Crocus, Crocus Vernus 'Pickwick'


21st of March is springtime in Nothern Hemisphere ! This photo was taken a few days before the arrival of spring in the north of Europe.
Dutch crocus (Crocus Vernus) is a plant of the Crocus genus in the Iridaceae family. 'Pickwick' is a lovely variety with delicate white flowers, veined with deep purple.
It is an ideal bulb to naturalise in grass. The flowers appear from spring to early summer but during mild winters they can bloom as early as February.

Such a clever use of negative space to compliment the flower. Surely it really stands out with that clarity and contrast.

Beautiful! I have some of these, along with solid purple, white, and yellow crocus. I like the giant ones best. The smaller snow crocus are harder to see.
