This special crocus has many attributes we love, it blooms later than other crocus, and it features lilac blue and deep blue/violet striations in the petals! Plant with white daffodils for a clean and fresh April garden look. Also known as Tuscan Crocus as it is native to Northern Italy.

  • Crocus like a sunny location, but will tolerate partial shade.
  • Crocus require well-drained soil with organic matter. Amend soil with organic matter such as compost, manure or peat humus.
  • Space your crocus 2-4” apart, or plant together in one large hole leaving a small amount of space between bulbs so they are not touching.
  • Crocus don’t always have a noticeably pointed end. Plant your crocus 2-3” deep, with the flattest side touching the earth. If you are unsure which side is up, plant the crocus corms on their side, they will straighten out to find the sun.
  • Fertilize at planting with Hi Yield Bulb Food or for organic gardening use Bulb-Tone. Apply fertilizer at least 2” below the bottom of the bulbs so that the roots will get the most benefit from the fertilizer.
  • Water the area the crocus have been planted immediately after. Additional water in fall and winter is not necessary; bulbs prefer to be kept dry when dormant.
  • Apply a 2” layer of mulch in late fall.

Last fall, I purchased a spring bulb mixed and these little beauties were in there. They were the first to sprout and bloom, beautiful little flowers!

These arrived healthy and were planted last fall. They all bloomed in early spring but were yellow blooms instead of the purple and pictured. Otherwise, very happy with this purchase!
