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.
