Gardeners' Notes:

I planted these crocus, along with 'Jean d'Arc', and 'Pickwick' in my back lawn last fall, and was thrilled when they came up. Still a few weeks before my daffodils began blooming, and the rest of my garden was dormant. Planting crocus, or grape hyacinth in grass makes a great field of color in late winter, early spring. Just remember to let the green "grass" of the crocus die off before you mow, or set your mower to its highest setting, otherwise they won't get the energy then need to reproduce and come back next year.
