‘Orange Monarch’ Snow Crocus (Crocus chrysanthus ‘Orange Monarch’) are some of spring’s earliest flowers and a welcome sign of spring. ‘Orange Monarch’ is truly spectacular with its rich orange-gold petals. The outside of the cupped flower is etched in a ruby-black wash, reminding us of Monarch butterflies. Short in stature but big in color, they are garden showstoppers. Because they bloom in early spring, Crocus bulbs can be planted above and amongst larger, later blooming bulbs. Planted densely, in well-drained soil, in full-sun-to partial shade, these plucky bulbs will bloom and multiply for years to come, increasing your enjoyment with every spring.
