When the snow melts, you will view the green foliage or flowers. Crocus come in an assortment of colors; yellow, purple, orange, red, pink, white. Grow spring blooming crocus along your walkway, scattered in a rock garden, in containers, on a sunny slope or plant an informal naturalize garden in your lawn. The crocus flower will add color and interest to your landscape..
Crocus bulbs are easy to grow provided the garden site has full sun to part shade with well-drained soil that has a sandy loam. Choose your garden site wisely as it is not advisable to cut back the crocus plants that grow in your lawn until the leaves die back naturally. Thus if tall grass in late spring bothers you then refrain from planting crocus in your lawn and plant in gardens instead.
