Crocus are the heralds of spring, often blooming when there’s still snow on the ground. Their beautiful blossoms attract hungry bees, who are drawn to the rich, golden pollen inside each flower. Crocus plants are not fussy and will thrive almost anywhere.
Here are some tips for spectacular springtime color, year after year.
SUN & SHADE: Crocus bloom best when they are grown in full sun, but they’ll also grow well in partial shade.
ZONE: Crocus are hardy in zones 3-8.
WHEN TO PLANT: Plant crocus bulbs in fall, once the weather has cooled down.
