Description / Delft Blue Blend Crocus Bulbs

Pack of 10 Bulbs

Delft Blue Blend Crocus . . . just the name evokes fine old china in beautiful shades of azure, powder, and navy. And that's what you'll get with this top-notch Crocus mix: all the best blue and lavender shades in the family, many striped with white, on big flowers that return each year and may even multiply into generous colonies over time. Economical and guaranteed to delight, Delft Blue Blend Crocus belongs front and center in your late winter and early spring garden.

Many bulbs are called "the harbinger of spring," but for us, Crocus is the real beginning of things. These flower stems, tightly furled, push up through the last snowfall, determined to be the very first to open in the new season. The blooms are very large (3 to 4 inches), cup-shaped, and saturated with fresh color. The interior reveals a merry center of gold to orange. And they last, remaining to see the early daffodils open and sometimes even the very first tulips.

Delft Blue Blend Crocus is a low-growing gem of a plant, with grass-like green foliage beneath the blooms. It thrives in sun or shade, even the poor dry shade beneath trees where little else will grow. Deer tend to leave it alone (like many bulbs, it is poisonous), so it has a chance to spread over time. Find a place where it is congenial in your landscape, keep the soil decent enough to allow roots and bulbs to grow, and you will be amazed at how Crocus can take off.

Just 4 to 6 inches high and 4 inches wide, Crocus is a miniature pleasure for the front of the foundation, the edge of garden paths, containers, and of course the borders. With this Delft Blue Blend Mix, you have a ready-made garden design, which you can plant in minutes and enjoy for decades. Order today!
