Known as the ambassador of spring, Crocus are often the first blooms of the spring. According to Greek mythology, crocuses sprung from the land where Greek gods Zeus and Hura lived as symbol of their love.
Originating in Crete, Crocuses were brought to Holland in the 16th century. The name means yellow saffron, as certain varieties of crocus are used to produce the spice saffron. Today, Dutch Crocuses are larger and more vibrantly colored than their saffron producing relatives.
Tuck these blooms into your flower beds or naturalize them into your lawn to enjoy in your garden. And if you live near wooded areas, these easy to grow bulbs are deer resistant. Crocuses are sure to bring you joy as spring’s first blooms and a sign that your other blooms will soon follow.
