Description
Showy, velvety deep purple flowers with orange anthers add great color to any spring garden. (Crocus tommasinianus)

These are the ones 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.

        Comments about Wild Crocus Bulbs Ruby Giant, Wild Crocus Bulbs Ruby Giant:

        I have found that these lovely gems do best when planted 3 inches deep here in my zone 5 clay soil. They feed the hungry bees in early spring and I can boast to have flowers when everyone else has none.
