Since Crocus are always the first flowers out in the spring, they are a delight to see glistening in the sun. Their vibrant colors are sure to bring you joy! Crocus are ideal for naturalizing and may be planted anywhere in your landscape, in sun or shade, along borders, in groups along a fence or around a tree or mailbox.
Crocus look best in mass plantings. They are some of the earliest blooming bulbs in the spring and a signal that winter is ending. Crocuses are resistant to insects and disease.

3. Cover the bulbs with soil and water thoroughly.
Grow in informal groupings of 5 or more bulbs. Plant bulbs in fall 2-3 inches deep or 2 times the height of the bulb and 4" apart in well-drained soil with plenty of humus. Remove old flowers leaving as much stem and foliage as possible until they die down.
