Fall is for crocuses

It is time to plant spring flowering crocuses, of course, but also to enjoy the fall bloomers! I planted a few species for the first time last year, and am delighted to see Crocus speciosus has come back to kick off the fall crocus season!

Joseph,
Love this photo! Ours should open tomorrow. Today I found our saffron crocus blooming, took two years to bloom!

I love fall crocuses! I'm bummbed because my Crocus Sativus didn't bloom this year. I hope it wasn't eaten by those pesky squirrels.

So pretty! I just planted about a hundred of these and now your pictures are making me super impatient.

Purple is my favorite color so I’ve planted Crocuses last spring and now they are blooming gloriously. Unfortunately, the flowers only last about a day or two in my yard while my friend’s stay perky for about 7 days. I wish I could figure out what I’m doing wrong.

By the way, I love your blog and I visit it frequently. I have also incorporated your link within my OrchidCare.org site as a valuable resource for my visitors. Would you be willing to return the favor by placing my link within your Some Gardening Blogs I Read section?
