About Crocus Van Guard
Crocuses are low-growing, clump-forming perennial plants grown from corms. They are very adaptable and small enough to be tucked into flower beds, under trees, or even on the lawn.
Crocus flowers bloom in a variety of bright colors including purple, lavender and voilet.
Crocus plants are small, reaching just 3-6 inches in height. The leaves are grass-like, generally with a light stripe running up the middle.
