Tracing back to the 1880's, this crocus has been a long-lasting favorite. Blooming very early in the spring, sometimes even among the snowflakes, the 'King of the Striped' Crocus have white flowers with lustrous petals delicately striped with purple. The yellow centers make quite the statement among the stark ground.

  • 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.

The most beautiful crocus I've seen. The pictures don't do justice to the veins of purple against the white. And it's a big flower too! Definitely going to get more.
