LARGE FLOWERING CROCUS MIXTURE

Our Large Flowering Crocus Mixture is a wonderful blend of white (Jeanne d’Arc), yellow (Golden Yellow), blue (Grand Maitre) and purple (Flower Record and Pickwick) varieties. Large Flowering Crocus, sometimes called Giant Dutch Crocus or the Wild Crocus of the Alps or the Pyrenees, bloom about two weeks after Species Crocus. Drifts en masse are spectacular in garden and pathside borders, and in meandering rivers through sun dappled woodlands. (If you do plant them in lawns, mowing should be held off until the foliage dies back naturally, about five weeks after blooming.) They have graceful six-petaled, 5” tall flowers that open and close on sunny days, and grass-like foliage with narrow, median silver-white stripes.

Planting:

Large Flowering Crocus Mixture are Deer-resistant, they naturalize readily in well-draining soil and in full to partial sunlight. These larger corms have reticulated tunics. They may be a target for squirrels that may dig up newly planted bulbs for a snack, or for transplant elsewhere. You’ll need about nine corms (bulbs) per square foot for a dense planting.

If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs about 8" apart. Space the groupings at least 3 feet apart.If planting in pots, plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.

Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Maintenance:

Fertilize in the spring with a well-balanced fertilizer when signs of growth appear. Keep the plants well watered during the growth period. It’s best to water at ground level to minimize fungal diseases and flower discoloration. Maintain a layer of mulch to keep the soil cool and maintain moisture, but keep the mulch away from the stems to prevent rot. Lilies prefer “their head in the sun and their feet in the shade.”
