These goregous, white crocus are quite courageous, often coming up while the snow is still on the ground! The winter-defying flowers of the 'Jeanne d'Arc' Crocus have glossy pure white petals with a slight hint of purple at the base which surround beaming yellow stamen in the center. They stand quite upright and are great for naturalizing in grassy lawn areas or woodlands.

  • 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.

A Magnificent Tall and Proud Bloom

Rating:
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
Pros:
  • Handles Planting Mistakes
  • Beautiful Tall Bloom
Cons:
  • Packaging has only a product number
While I explain in my reviews of Yellow and Purple how I planted these all too deep, these White came up as expected, after the Yellow, and my Purple was unexpected but nicely last to bloom.
These first bloom at a normal crocus height, and continue to grow taller. Some of them are as tall as short Tulips. I really like them, and a few of them are double blooming.
The only con I have is that the packaging has difficult to see information and only the product number, no color, nothing else. I got multiple packs so it was important to me to know what was what while I was planting, so I had to create a workaround to get my planting plan to work correctly.

Jeanne d' Arc Giant Crocus - just planted

Pros:
Cons:
The bulbs took longer than expected to receive unfortunately, but all arrived clearly labeled and in great condition. These flowers looked so beautiful in the photos and I am hopeful that they will all bloom as expected. They were fairly reasonably priced and should blend with my other Jeanne d' Arc Crocus - which are the normal size, and make an interesting collection.
