Our Crocuses

We look forward to late February and early March as that is when those little jewels, the crocuses burst into bloom, attracting the local honey bees and any winter flying bumbles and solitaries.

Our crocus lawn is in its second season and is looking great.

In almost every other part of the garden they open their sunny flowers whenever the slightest sunny ray catches them. We thought we would take a wander around the garden with camera in hand and see how many different crocus we now have in the garden. Enjoy the journey with us.

    A great idea to plant a crocus lawn. Do you recommend one type over another for this?

  2. I naturalize crocuses too, but mine will not be popping up for another few weeks. Thanks for bit of color this morning.

    You do have quite a few when it’s all said and done! Our lawn is still brown at crocus time. The flowers on green is a much better look!

  4. We tend to buy large flowered mixture in the green, nothing special.

  5. Ah, a true sign of spring. We are nowhere close to seeing their loveliness, but I look forward to when we do! Margie
