Bid farewell to winter with the Mixed Crocus Super Sak®. In early spring, these 4- to 5-inch tall perennial crocuses shoot up through the snow to let you know that gardening season is on its way. This carefully selected blend of Dutch bulbs produces white, golden yellow, and purple flowers, and a bi-coloured strain with alternating purple and white stripes. Each deep, goblet-shaped flower is complemented by a cluster of golden stamens for an extra pop of warm colour.
Prepare your crocus bulbs for their springtime debut by planting them in the fall, about 3 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart. The bulbs don't care for water-logged soil, so make sure to plant them in well-drained clay, loamy or sandy soil. Crocus vernus thrive in either full sunlight or partial shade and will grow almost anywhere in hardiness zones 3 through 9.
Use the mixed crocus Super Sak to reinvigorate empty lawns and other large areas such as meadows and groves. They will also look wonderful scattered throughout rock gardens or planted en masse in wide beds. Plant them in rows along houses and sheds, or bury small clusters of bulbs along walkways. Mix things up this spring with an assortment of Crocus vernus.
