Description
When most people say crocus, this is the one they think of. Among the larger Dutch crocus group, most are solid colored, except this standout. The striped crocus has been the favorite for years. A planting of this one alone can be a real stunning display, or you can simply add these to you mixture to have more of the favorite.

      Comments about American Meadows Dutch Crocus Bulbs Pickwick:

      You need a lot of them to make them look good. They are the early bloomers, the ones I wait for at the end of winter. They are great with white ones. Only issue is when you have a hot day, they are done immediately.

            I planted these along the edges & around shrubs & perenerials. They were the first to come up after a below zero month of temperature. A beautiful sight to see. Big blooms that lasted.

                    Comments about American Meadows Dutch Crocus Bulbs Pickwick:

                    I bought these totally on impulse because they were on sale. Can't resist a sale, can I? With no plan, I then had no idea where to plant them. I just stuck them in around my front border here and there, gathered in groups of three or four. Why, oh, why didn't I buy more?! I love love love these little guys! The purple stripes on the shimmery white are so pretty. What a way to welcome spring! I haven't actually counted to be sure they all came up, but they seem to be everywhere.

                      These looked hardy when I got them; but none of them came up. Maybe it was too cold in Chicago.
