Giant Crocus for Naturalizing

One of the Earliest Bloomers!

Giant Crocus for Naturalizing

One of the Earliest Bloomers!

Often the first sign of spring in the garden, Giant Crocus come in a variety of bright colors and really liven up the barren, post-winter landscape. We've selected big, healthy bulbs in a balanced blend of hues for our crocus mixture. Plant them liberally throughout a border, within a sunny rock garden, under trees and shrubs, or in a container, and you'll be rewarded with a mix of fragrant, cup-shaped blooms in the early-spring season. Since they only grow to 6" tall, crocus make a great ground cover planting, too! Easy to grow, they need only well-drained soil and a sunny spot to thrive. Deer tend to avoid. Hardy in Zones 3-9.
