About Crocus Sieberi Tricolor

The snow may still be falling, but this spectacular little beauty is beginning to bloom. An RHS Award of Garden Merit winner, Crocus Sieberi Tricolor, also known as 'Snow Crocus' is one of the most striking and earliest crocuses to flower. These large, fragrant flowers have lilac-blue petals and a golden throat delicately edged with pure white. Sitting atop sturdy stems and surrounded by grass-like foliage, the blooms open only in the light and close tightly in rainy weather and at night. A fantastic pollinator, Sieberi Tricolor naturalizes easily, will come back year after year and looks stunning in flower beds, lawns, under trees, rock gardens, in front of shrubs or along walkways.

How to Grow Crocus

Planting Crocus

  • Plant these bulbs in fall.
  • Plant them with the pointy end up in a sunny to semi-shaded area about 8 cm (3 in) deep and 5 to 8 cm (2 to 3 in) apart.
  • If you have trouble with gophers or squirrels eating your bulbs, try sprinkling red pepper in the holes, covering the bulbs with chicken-wire, surrounding bulbs with sharp shards of gravel or other substance, or planting rodent-repelling bulbs like Fritillaria nearby.
  • These bulbs do best in well-drained soil.

Growing Crocus

  • Because these bulbs flower so early, crocus adapt well to planting in lawns and will multiply over time to cover large areas.
  • These bulbs look good planted in groups at the base of trees or in wooded areas.
  • Plant in groups of twenty or more bulbs which then appear more natural.

Crocus Care

  • If bulbs are naturalized in lawns wait to mow until foliage has died back.
  • These bulbs get on well with other spring- blooming bulbs and can easily be layered with other bulbs to create a burst of colour.

Winterizing Crocus

  • These bulbs are great for naturalizing and almost require no care.
  • If your crocus seem to perform poorly, the most likely reason is over-watering in the summer. Crocus prefer their soil damper in the spring and fall, but dry and warm during the summer.
