Plant them in a sunny well-drained somewhat protected spot where they will be visible. Plant closely for support, or among ground covers. Spreads easily and rapidly. Leafs out in spring. The hardiest fall crocus available.

6106 Crocus speciosus
These true crocus, close cousins to the spring flowers, are not toxic like the fall-blooming Colchicum; indeed, saffron crocus forms one of the world’s great spices.
Plant these in a sunny well-drained somewhat protected spot where they will be visible during their mid-late fall bloom.
