Crocus ‘Jeanne d’Arc’

White crocus with pale stripe and bright orange anthers

Crocus ‘Jeanne d’Arc’ produces relatively large blooms above slender leaves with a pronounced central stripe. The flowers are pure white with delicate purple veins and bold orange stamens, creating a wonderful pop in late winter / early spring.

These ones were growing with other bulbs in a large terracotta pot at RHS Garden Harlow Carr.  The gardeners have applied a layer of sharp grit as a mulch to help conserve water and make it less likely that splashes of mud will spoil the flowers before their time.

  1. My mother grew crocus in every Texas garden she had. I think of her every time I see one. Purple was my favorite.
