Crocus Chrysanthus Ard Schenk
The most perfect, crystal white with a lovely lemon eye. Slightly ruffled petals. Chrysanthus Crocus are generally earlier blooming than the Vernus hybrids, often starting late June. Chrysanthus quickly increase forming neat clumps.
Crocus prefer a full sun or partly shaded position. Prepare your soil to a depth of 20cm, ensuring the soil is light and fluffy. Plant bulbs approximately 5cm apart and 2cm deep.
Crocus will also thrive in a woodland type environment, with the full winter and spring sun and then shelter from the hot summer's sun. Easy to grow and often quick to multiply, crocus form nice clumps and provide good winter colour.
Feed your crocus with a good all round bulb fertiliser at the time of planting.
Please note, we do not dispatch our bulbs until the March, and do not recommend planting until April at the earliest. Bulbs should be stored in a cool, dry location prior to planting. Please allow for an initial delay when processing orders due to our backlog.
