Plant Information

A large clump of species crocus can be one of the loveliest early spring displays of all. Tricolor bloom early, like all wild crocus, and if planted this fall, will greet you in early spring with gorgeous purple, orange, and white blooms.

These Crocus are often called 'Snow Crocus' for obvious reasons. They bloom well before the Dutch Crocus, so for a long season of crocus bloom, plant them both. They work almost exactly the same. Unlike the Dutch crocus group of hybrids, these are true 'wild bulbs'-- species crocus that grow in the wild in Greece and other areas. Add these jewel-toned beauties to your wildflower collection and you'll enjoy them for years.

      Never bloomed

      Comments about American Meadows Wild Crocus Bulbs Tri-Color:

      I planted all the bulbs after I got the soil prepped, but I don't understand why any of hem sprouted at all. I followed the proper directions andI was only able to find ONE purple flower and that was the end of it. I was hoping the bulbs would continue to grow and spread, but I highly doubt it's going to happen otherwise it would be beautiful blooms. Very disappointed.

          Comments about American Meadows Wild Crocus Bulbs Tri-Color:

          We planted 50 of these along the sidewalk in our front garden, along with 100 similar single-color crocus. These were definitely the star of the bunch and they seemed to last longer, too. We bought these very late in the season and therefore didn't expect great performance but the bulbs arrived in terrific shape and the vast majority - if not all - bloomed the following Spring. I'm really looking forward to seeing the groupings naturalize and I'm tempted to buy more for the back yard.

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
