This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun to partial shade
  • Soil: rich but well drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (will need protection during winter)

    Fabulous, nodding, jade-green, bell-like bracts appear from April to June gradually turning pink and persisting well into autumn. This interesting plant has umbelliferous flowerheads that slightly resemble those of lovage and angelica, and is great for cutting and drying. Originally from Mexico, this genus is named after the California plantswoman Mildred Mathias, who discovered it in 1954. Crocus were the first to preview this plant in our garden at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2007.

  • Garden care: These plants are quite tolerant of low temperatures, however it is important that you make sure the plant does not get too wet during the colder weather. Provide a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant in spring.
