Out of Season Giant Crocus for Naturalizing

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.
