The crocus has long played a role in the lives and culture of Appalachia– providing both beauty and a sense of history, just like we strive to do here at Blenko Glass Company. Though the species of crocus flower native to the region is pale yellow in color, there is no surer sign of Spring’s arrival in the hills and hollers than purple splashes of crocus flowers along the forest’s edge, reminders of the Irish roots of many who live here today.

As such, we want to welcome a brand-new color to our catalog of famous Blenko hues– Spring Crocus. Reverse-engineered in 2022 from one of the most popular purple formulas from our now-retired architectural program, this color has never before been produced in tableware.
