White Crocus




Crocus is one of those plants that is overlooked by the home gardener far too often, and that is truly a shame. The bulbs (or corms in some cases) are cheap, readily available, and easy to grow, and varieties include both fall and spring bloomers. These are plants that will perform admirably and provide vivid colors in the very seasons in which color is difficult to achieve. Due to their smaller stature, Crocus are more effective planted in drifts rather than just a plant or two here and there, so do go the extra mile and get as many as you can afford, regardless of whether you choose autumn or spring blooming varieties. All Crocus varieties are tough, hardy little plants, but they hate wet feet, so do provide a site with good drainage for best results.
