Crocus. First Blooms of the Year.

Apr. 5, 2011

It always surprises me when the crocus flowers, surrounded by drab sleeping plants and a thick layer of leaf mulch, they pop out so quickly with bright sprays of yellow and purple. Though theyre a tiny plant and fade almost as quickly as they came, this is a plant I wouldnt get rid of. Its a wonderful reminder that summer will be here shortly.

These were an anonymous gift. I didnt do this crocus planting, they just ended up mysteriously in my garden. (I have great neighbors) And I gladly accept, because they’re such a joyful surprise. More of these might be a necessity soon, because they look so beautiful planted in clusters. And when they disappear you can overplant them with annuals.

Planting Crocus Flowers

Crocus flowers grow from corms and should be planted in the fall. They dont need much of anything, just some sun and a good cold, dormant period. They come up very early (its April 5th!) and will stay in bloom even if it snows again. They wont be here for long, but crocus flowers kick off the season just right
