Crocus - Giant - Queen of Blues
The Crocus 'Queen of Blues', 'Crocus giant', a fall planted bulb, is a profusely flowering Crocus with appealing blue flowers. Each bulb will produce four to five flowers. They are excellent for naturalizing in the border, woodland garden or in the lawn. These extremely care-free bulbs are among the most popular bulbs used in the landscape. Queen of Blues blooms in early spring and has a 3 week bloom period.
Crocuses perform best in a sandy, well-drained soil. When planted in the lawn, be certain not to cut the leaves off when the lawn is mowed. The leaves are needed for photosynthesis to build up the new bulbs for the next season. For a massive effect, plant in great sweeps of 100 to 150 bulbs. Use them in rock gardens, ground covers, containers, mass plantings and borders.
