Crocus 'Ruby Giant'

Hardy Corm

A superbly weather resistant variety which can be easily naturalised in grass. Crocus 'Ruby Giant' is an early cultivar blooming from as early as February. A fabulous display of purple flowers rise above slender, strap-like foliage. The large blooms are supported on sturdy stems, ensuring that they remain upright throughout the flowering period. Like all crocus, this variety will provide valuable nectar for pollinating insects in early spring. Bulb size 5/7. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 5cm (2").

Grow crocus in any well drained garden soil in sun or semi shade. Spring flowering crocus bulbs should be planted during the autumn, in large clumps at a depth of 10cm (4") and at a distance of 7cm (3") apart. Alternatively grow them in containers or naturalised in grass.
Allow the strap like foliage to die back naturally after flowering. Avoid mowing areas of grass where crocus are naturalised until they have completely died back.
