Crocus vernus 'Flower Record'
In this mix
- In Grass
- Broad Tolerance
- 15cm (6in)
- Common name
- Dutch Crocus
- Full Sun
- Plant 8-10cm (3-4in) deep, 10cm (4in) apart.
- Plant in a gritty, poor to moderately fertile soil. Ideal for growing in grass where the early blooms can be appreciated. Plant 10cm (4in) deep to deter mice from digging them up.
One of my favourite bulbs to plant as a top layer in a container (just below the surface) which flowers well before tulips to bring the cheer of spring a good 6 weeks early.
Its leaves grow after the flowers and are brilliant for their arching elegance with the tulips.
