Crocus is one of the best known bulbs for late winter or early spring flowers.
The blooms are fragrant, available in many different colors, and can often be seen blooming through the snow.
They are easy to grow, come back reliably every year and will naturalize into a large clump of flowers.
Spring crocuses go dormant in the summer so plan on growing them with companion plants that will cover any bare spots.
Plant 3″ deep and 3″ to 4″ apart.
