There are different strains types of crocus. The species crocus bloom early with the large flowered dutch crocus blooming 10 days to 2 weeks later. Crocus likes a well drained gritty soil and a sunny location. The flowers do not open properly in shade or partial shade. Where crocus are naturalized in the lawn delay mowing until the crocus foliage has matured.
Crocus are planted in early September. The corms are planted 3 to 4 inches apart and 3 inches deep. If planted too deep they fail to bloom.
Divide when the foliage dies down. Remove dead and decayed corms. Replant the corms again in September.
