      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.

                    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.

                      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).
