If you're searching for a look that's anything but subtle, plant a huge drift of Yellow Mammoth Crocus bulbs. Everyone knows that crocuses are the harbingers of spring, and these huge, deep yellow flowers shimmer in the sunlight. There's nothing more reminiscent of the summer sun yet to come. In the language of flowers, crocus translates to cheerfulness, which is what these bright yellow darlings bring to the garden. Hardy and drought tolerant, they multiply and return year after year. Their petite growth habit makes them ideal for planting beneath shrubs and deciduous trees, along walkways, and even in containers on patios, decks, and porches.
Growing Instructions: Select a spot in the garden that receives full sun to part shade where the soil drains well. Loosen the soil, and plant the bulbs, pointy end up, approximately 3-4" deep and a few inches apart. Tamp down the soil and water well after planting. Foliage should be left to die back naturally as it provides the nutrients the bulb will need to grow and flower the following year. Bulbs may also be planted in containers and tubs at the same depth. Planting tip: For a more natural look, plant crocuses in clusters rather than in straight lines. To achieve a naturalized look, crocuses can also be planted in the lawn. Toss handfuls of bulbs onto the desired area of the lawn and plant them where they fall. Just don't mow the lawn until the leaves of the crocuses have died down.
