The corms are hardy to about -10°c but in cold areas it is wise to lift them when the plants die down in the autumn, store them in a cool frost-free place over the winter and plant them out in the spring. Make sure the corms do not dry out. It is best to avoid lifting the corms if at all possible since the new corms seem to derive some nutrition from the old corms that have flowered. Plants can divide quite freely when growing in a suitable location. Although the fresh flowers have no perfume, when dried and immersed in warm water they release a scent like that of the saffron crocus.Members of this genus are rarely if ever troubled by browsing deer or rabbits.
