Plant Autumn Crocus in late summer and you will be treated to little, lilac, crocus-like blooms later in the autumn. Plant some in your flower bed and let it glow in the sunlight. The green leaves grow first to let you know that the show is about to start! When the grassy foliage comes up in spring, let it die back on its own. A very easy late season treat!
