More Information

Crocus Korolkowii – The ‘Kiss of Spring’, a scented bright yellow Specie Crocus with dark purple flecking to the exterior petals.

Crocus Korolkowii does best when grown in pots with some protection. Originally from Central Asia, it is hardy enough for winter cold, but does not like sitting in wet soil, it especially needs to be dry when dormant, during the summer months.

Crocus Korolkowii will flower from February to March. Make sure you leave the foliage to die back to allow the bulbs to flower again the following year, this should be around April.

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

Plant crocus bulbs in the 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. Water the crocus bulbs well after planting, and water again if the weather is dry. Once the flowers have faded, deadhead them to encourage them to bloom the following year.

Crocuses can be grown in pots. Choose a pot that is at least 6 inches deep and fill it with a well-draining potting mix. Pots dry out easily, so ensure that they crocus bulbs are well watered.

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 are a favourite snack for mice and squirrels.
