Technically known as corms, Crocus bulbs should be planted in early fall before the ground freezes, depending on your growing zone and climate. Plant in a sunny site near a wall or foundation for earlier blooms, or in a shadier location for later emerging bulbs.
Crocus corms do best in full sun or partial shade, gardeners in growing zones 3 to 8 can leave Crocus bulbs in the ground, or even in a large planter year-round! Crocus bulbs require at least six to eight weeks of what's known as 'chill hours' before they will sprout. Best in well-drained soil with moderate fertility and mulch.
Crocus Blue Blend adds triple the delight to your garden and landscape! NatureHills.com ships your spring-flowering bulbs at the appropriate time in fall based on your growing zone!
