Early bloomers in purple, white or yellow.
With their colorful, bright flowers and easy-to-grow nature, crocus bulbs call attention to themselves by being the first plants to bloom in spring, often contrasting magnificently with the surrounding white snow. Crocuses do best when planted four to six inches deep during the fall, about six to eight weeks before the first frost -- when soil temperatures are below 60 degrees Fahrenheit -- so roots can establish themselves before the winter. Following this, it's recommended to cover them with compost and mulch to offer protection during the colder months.
Crocus plants range in height from three to six inches, and are often planted together in large groups to add a dramatic mass of color to the landscape. These flowers are known to thrive in well-drained soil, and when planted in locations with full sun exposure or partial shade. If the surrounding soil happens to be high in clay content, compost should be added to improve drainage. With little effort, these fun flowers will come back year after year and provide a vibrant, cheerful color announcement that spring is here. After blooming, crocus flowers boast a delicate cup shape, and can be found in a variety of colors, including white, yellow, blue, purple, orange, and pink.
