This charming mix of crocus is perfect for a natural look in your garden or lawn areas. This package of Giant Mixed Crocus will create a mosaic of whites, purples, and yellows which is truly delightful! This mix of giant crocus is made up of the large flowering Dutch Crocus, also referred to as Crocus vernus. Flowers will close at night, on cloudy days or in shaded planting locations.

Planting tip: If you are planting crocus in the lawn, the foliage must remain intact before the lawn is mowed, this can be up to 4 weeks after they are done blooming.

  • 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.

My first time growing crocus so it could be user error, but some of the foilage was curly! Was still a very cheerful sight to welcome spring.

These are absolutely beautiful, its the first year and they are absolutely stunning. The yellow ones send off so many flowers per bulb it is absolutely amazing. I live in Wisconsin USDA growing Zone 5b and they have stood up to the freezing temperatures at night. During the day they are full of tinny insects looking for food, and I feel happy that they are providing food and shelter to Wisconsin's insects. I plan on ordering more this fall and couldn't be happier!

Great combo
