- One of the First Blooms in Spring
- Riveting Petal Pattern
- Rare Orange Crocus
- Great in Containers
It's impossible to flutter by the Orange Monarch Crocus without stopping to admire its exceptional color and pattern. As the only true orange crocus you will find, this rare beauty will pollinate your heart with happiness come early spring.
The Orange Monarch Crocus blooms before almost any other spring flower, and with its unique color and pattern, it's a well-deserved spring solo. The Orange Monarch Crocus's flowers feature tall, narrow petals, creating a champagne-flute-like form. True to its name, this striking flower is a true, rich shade of orange with deeply hued flames. The Orange Monarch Crocus's flames can range in tone from brown to black or violet.
Plant your Orange Monarch Crocus as a photo-worthy sea of orange that shines bright against your grass. Its variegated foliage will create a lush and luxurious effect before and after it blooms. Many gardeners also make the most of these early-spring blooms by planting them in the dappled shade beneath your favorite tree or in drifts along the roadside or walkway.
These brilliant spring wonders are luxurious, yet hardy. They take snow, wind, and rain without batting an eye. They also grow well in most soil types and conditions. They prefer full sun to partial shade. Orange Monarch Crocuses return year after year and multiply in numbers, but are easily separated. When planted in the lawn, it's best to wait about six weeks after they've flowered to mow over them.
Don't miss your chance to enjoy these stunning crocuses in spring. These often fly off our shelves. So, order your Orange Monarch Crocuses for fall shipment, and they'll arrive just in time to plant.
We will ship your bulbs based on the correct planting time for your area.
