For me, Crocus symbolize renewal and rebirth. They burst forth with exuberance early in spring, before much else has showed any signs of life. This year, they are especially symbolic of our journey since the September floods. These wee flowers are the first to show signs of life at the Greenhouse this spring and cheer us to no end.

If you want these beauties in your garden, you will need to purchase them as bulbs in the fall. Once you have them in a sunny location in a zone of your garden that has good drainage, you will be able to enjoy their blooms season after season as they naturalize in your garden.
