Crocus chrysanthus ‘Fuscotinctus’ (Snow Crocus) is named for the striking dark marks on the back of the golden petals. Snow Crocus are some of spring’s earliest blooms. 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.
