Distinctive orange colour is rare for a crocus.
This snow crocus, in a rare shade of orange, offers a fabulous spring welcome from dreary winter days. This variety is truly unique, the only colour of its kind, and it looks like someone scattered deep orange jewels across the snow. Once planted and left undisturbed, these 2–3 cm cup-shaped flowers will reappear year after year. A naturalizing beauty that is easy to grow in the garden or in a container. Crocus olivieri balansae

first colour in spring

These bloom are very small and it is difficult to see the purple stripe unless up close. But mine came up orange (as pictured) and they were gorgeous. I'm going to buy more. They would go perfect with mini daffodils and mini irises that are up at the same time. To get that colour that early in the spring, well it made me happy. Consider them a teaser to the riotous colour of spring that's just around the corner.

I found the colour much closer to yellow than orange. I've planted it for a few years, always appears yellow.

Note the tiny flower size of this crocus; although the orange colour is striking the overall effect will be disappointing unless planted en masse.
