More Information

Crocus ‘Jeanne d’Arc’ – also known as Joan of Arc, is the only large-flowering white crocus. They have bright orange anthers with purple markings on the stem and flower base. They look great planted between botanical tulips.

Crocus are wonderful perennial flowers that can create luscious carpets of flowers during spring in the gap between the early flowering snowdrops and the first tulips.

Growing Crocus bulbs

Crocus bulbs will do best in well draining soil, good sandy soil is ideal, preferably in a sunny position. They will grow under trees whilst there is no canopy and the sun is getting through. If your soil is heavy, you may need to add some compost or sand to improve drainage.

Plant crocus bulbs in Autumn, a minimum of six to eight weeks before the first frost. The depth of planting depends on the size of the corms. In general, plant small corms 2 inches deep and large corms 3 inches deep. Making sure the small point in the centre is pointing up. Water the crocus bulbs well after planting, and water again if the weather is dry.

Crocuses naturalise well in your garden, so if you want this to happen, plant them in areas where the soil will not be disturbed, such as in your lawn or under trees. If you are planting in a lawn you can cut an envelope in the turf and slide a few in. Make sure the foliage has died back before the first mow some time in late April.

If you are going to plant them in pots, choose a pot that is at least 6″ deep and fill it with a well-draining potting mix. Pots dry out easily, so ensure that they crocus bulbs are well watered.

Once the flowers have faded, deadhead them to encourage them to bloom the following year.

Crocuses are deer-resistant, making them great for country gardens where deer can be a problem. Although, you may have to add a little extra protection as they can be a favourite snack for mice and squirrels.
