About Blue Pearl Crocus Bulbs (Species)

Crocus chrysanthus

Seed Type Corm
Plant Type Species

Blue Pearl crocuses will really make your garden glow, with their luminous blue/white petals and soft yellow throats. The Blue Pearl is a specie or "snow" crocus. It's one of the first fall-planted bulbs to bloom at the end of the winter, sometimes emerging right out of the snow! If you plant the bulbs in a large group, you'll get a stunning tapestry of color! They grow to 6 inches tall—perfect for walkways and in beds, rock gardens, and perennial borders. Plant them in the fall for an early spring bloom. Combine them with large-flowering crocuses for an extended bloom time. And, good news: they're bee-friendly and deer-resistant!
