Crocus bouquets - a source of mythological wonder
Croci are beautiful tender little flowers, which peep up from the forest floor in wooded regions across half of the world! They can be found in Europe, in Africa, in the Middle East and all the way into Central Asia. The name crocus originally comes from the Greek word krokos, which probably comes from a word meaning saffron yellow. However the crocus is by no means limited in its colour pallette – as well as vibrant yellows, corcuses also appear in lilac, mauve, white and many other colours.. Croci make frequent appearances in Greek myths, too. As described in this article on the Clare Florist blog, one myth of the Greek gods Zeus goes that Zeus lusted after the beautiful Phoenician princess Europa. He came to earth in the form of a bull ? and then, to lure Europa towards him, he transfixed her by breathing a crocus flower. She came close, following the scent and beauty of the crocus, and he whisked her away.
We can't promise you Zeus, but you, too, will be seduced and overwhelmed by the soft beauty and delicate scent of the crocus. Shown below are a selection of our bouquets which contain this ancient, magnificent flower.
