Blue Pearl Crocus

Availability: Out of stock

As legends go, this Crocus comes back to life every spring, roaming gardens, haunting gardeners with its ghostlike beauty. Well, that might not be entirely accurate…The Blue Pearl Crocus (Crocus 'Blue Pearl') does have an ethereal glow!

It also does return to life spring after spring. As for haunting, though, most gardeners celebrate the emergence of these pearlescent beauties rather than shy away from their presence. The satin-like quality of these petals makes this petite pearl of a flower seem to glow! This Blue Pearl has a pearl of its own hidden tucked into its center. As the Blue Pearl Crocus's petals slowly open, its golden throat becomes visible.

The Blue Pearl Crocus is by far one of the most attractive varieties of Crocus. Its goblet-shaped bloom glows against its green foliage. Its outer petals have deckled blue centers that transition to a pale blue around the edges.

Planting and Application:

These Crocuses are highly desirable as rare blue beauties. As some of the first flowers to emerge in spring, they're a sight for sore eyes! Brighten Rock Gardens, and include these radiant perennial bulbs in your Moon Garden and Cottage border!

Blue Pearl Crocuses make for an opulent show when planted en masse. They stand out against taller foliage and look great grouped in a pollinator border, scattered along a garden path, or around your mailbox or hardscaping. Many agree that the Blue Pearl Crocus also shows best as a woodland planting where the woods meet your yard.

Crocus are fantastic for both early spring color outdoors and even winter forcing indoors! Containers and small-scale gardens are perfect for these larger-than-life perennial bulbs!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Crocus corms thrive in full sun to partial shade. Plant in more sun in a protected location for earlier blooms, and in partly shaded exposed areas for later blooms. Provide moderate moisture and some bulb fertilizer when planting in the fall. When forcing bulbs indoors, or so they will bloom in the spring, these fall-planted bulbs need at least 6-8 weeks of Chill Hours. This chill time stimulates them to bloom, so if you are in a warm winter climate or growing them for winter color, give them a cool location to rest before planting. Trim the foliage back after it yellows in the late summer or fall after frost.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Any Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Clean Foliage After It Yellows
  • Deer Resistant
  • Low Maintenance Perennial Bulb
