Color! This collection is all about bringing the best and most color to your early spring gardens, and one of the easiest ways is planting Crocus bulbs. These flowers are extremely cold and hardy, and they’ve even been known to bloom through the snow!
These carefully selected colors have been chosen to create beautiful artistic landscapes in springtime. These three varieties display contrasting color themes of gold and royal purples designed to illuminate your early spring gardens when no other colors are showing.
Crocus are super easy and versatile in the landscape. They do great all around the garden, including directly in your flower beds, along walkways, in containers, woodland areas, or even in your turf lawn! Pair these crocuses with your daffodils, Hyacinths, and Tulips for a color-filled spring garden!
This collection includes 10 each bagged/labeled separately of Remembrance, Pickwick, Yellow Mammoth, and white Jeanne d' Arc. Remembrance is a deep, lovely violet crocus with a classic crocus shape that is beloved worldwide. Over time these Dutch crocuses, which are larger than other crocuses, will naturalize in your garden, creating a wonderfully rich spring flower season. Next is Pickwick and it puts on a gorgeous display of white flowers with cool blue stripes all of which are accentuated with vibrant yellow anthers.
This is a crocus you will anxiously wait for every winter. Yellow Mammoth, a golden deep apricot and a sure royal addition to any spring garden. Jeanne d' Arc is a stunning clear white crocus that is perfect for gently rolling over slops, lining your walkways, or simply planting in your perennial garden beds. Simply put, a one-time planting of these crocuses in the fall will bring your garden happiness for years to come, without any additional work on your behalf. That is why we love them.

Shipping and Handling Included
Water: Water your plants immediately after taking them out of the box. Give them enough water, so the soil appears damp, and water trickles out the bottom of the pot.
Plants look Dry, or Foliage appears Lackluster: Sometimes, plants may appear dried out and wilted after the voyage. Do not despair. The foliage may look lackluster when this happens, but the rootstock is still perfectly healthy and alive. To plump your plants back up, water them and wait 5 minutes and then water them again. This will generally rehydrate them. Keep these plants well-watered until you can replant them into larger containers or in the garden within the next week. If plants arrive dry, it is often because the roots have outgrown the small shipping pots and need more room to grow; roots tend to dry out quickly in small containers. Your plants are very much alive; when you transplant them into larger pots or the earth, they will start growing quickly! So, replant them as soon as possible. Remove any yellow or brown foliage. If a lot of the plant's foliage has yellowed, you may cut the foliage back to just above the soil line. This will give your plant a chance to restart, encouraging bushier, thicker growth.
Time to Plant! Your plants are now ready to be replanted. Follow the planting guide inside for detailed instructions on how to plant your new plants most effectively.
First Year Maintenance: For perennials, the first year (or sometimes two) will require additional maintenance. During the first season of growth, even if the plant is known to be drought-tolerant, it is very important to water your plants on a regular basis, meaning up to 3-4 times per week. When plants are in their infancy stage, they need to be watered by their caretaker until they’ve had a chance to build a strong enough root system to subsist on their own. If you are experiencing severe heat or drought-like conditions, or your plants appear consistently droopy, you may need to water your plants almost every day.
