About Orange Monarch - Crocus Bulbs (Species)

Crocus chrysanthus

Seed Type Corm
Plant Type Species

It's almost a surreal experience to see Orange Monarch crocuses popping up over the snow in early spring. They're the perfect symbol of spring bursting forth. Plant 20 to 50 in a group, and you'll get a spectacular tapestry of orange jewels. They grow to 6 inches tall—perfect for walkways and in beds, rock gardens, and perennial borders. Combine them with large-flowering crocuses to get an extended bloom time! Bonus: they're deer-resistant, and bees love them.
