The Crocus 'Assorted Colors', 'Crocus giant', is a fall planted bulb. The Crocus heralds of spring, and cheers up the garden after a dull and long winter. They bloom profusely in whites, yellows, blues and purples. Some are solids, others are two-toned.
The cupped flowers are borne on short stems above grasslike leaves. Plant them in rock gardens, among ground covers or anywhere you need cheer in late winter.These extremely care-free bulbs are among the most popular bulbs used in the landscape. Assorted Colors 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.
