Named after Mr Barr, a Scottish cultivator
and bulb trader who lived in the 19th century, Barr's Purple has a six-petal
crown in a rich violet colour with a lighter coloured interior. A silvery
shimmer on the outside of the petals makes this charming crocus even more
It was a prize winner as early as 1939, because of the contrasting large golden orange stamens and pistil. The foliage is open and delicate with narrow silvery stripes. The flower opens when the shines and closes in the dark. In clusters under trees, in borders, rock gardens or pots they make a real statement. You coud also plant it in the lawn for a lively effect in early spring.
