Description

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.
