An extremely early bloomer and fast multiplier, the delightful 'Ruby Giant' Species (or Snow) Crocus adds great color to any spring garden. The petals are a rich violet-purple on the edges, gradually fading to pure white in the inside center of the flower.This is a cultivar of the Crocus tommasinianus also refered to as Tommies which unlike all other Crocus Tommies are squirrel and deer resistant! Great for beds and lawns!

  • 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.

100% germination.
Very very cute small authentic looking crocus.
Deer resistant, rabbits however like these but not so much as to dig a hole to get over obstacles. Highly recommend.

I love crocus, they are my favorite spring flower, and the rich deep purple color is my absolutely favorite. I ordered these to mix along with the botanical pack so I could get more of my favorite color in there.

* New gardeners take note: squirrels love these bulbs, they are tasty treats and a rare food source in the winter. If squirrels are trying to dig up your bulbs, I recommend covering your planting area with a thin wire mesh for the winter. I also mix with other bulbs squirrels don't like, such as daffodils, hyacinth, and squill. This method works quite well, I haven't lost a single bulb yet, despite having planted right under a tree that is home to a very wily squirrel who always lets me know what he thinks of my gardening. We've come to an understanding now and he is content with the neighborhood acorns.

We are excited to see these beautiful bulbs in full glory this spring in Missouri! My husband was busy in November planting the variety of crocus, tulips and giant lilies from Holland Bulb Farms. They were delivered very timely and in excellent shape along with a complimentary planting guide.
