Crocus - Species - Blue Pearl
The Crocus 'Blue Pearl', 'Snow Crocus species', is a fall planted bulb. You will fall in love with this delicate Snow Crocus. It is considered by many the most beautiful Crocus for its unique coloring. Each bulb produces a bunch of subtle violet-blue flowers which are creamy white on the inside. They grow wild in Greece, Turkey and the Balkans. Blue Pearl blooms in early spring and has a 3 week bloom period.
Crocuses perform best in a sandy, well-drained soil. Crocus bulbs remaining in the ground will always bloom a bit earlier than the ones planted the previous year. 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.
