Crocuses rank among the most popular spring flowers. However, there are also crocuses that flourish in autumn. They reproduce by development of small new corms or seeds. The young corms grow densely to the earth surface. If they have a size above 2mm, their contractile roots will pull them 5cm into the earth. Already at the end of January you can find the first sprouts of the early crocus species. The color of the blossoms ranges from white to yellow to various lilac and mauve shades. There are no crocuses with bright red flowers.
