Crocuses are also one of the easiest cold-hardy bulbs to force for indoor bloom.
The domesticated saffron crocus, Crocus sativus, is an autumn-flowering perennial plant unknown in the wild. It probably descends from the eastern Mediterranean autumn-flowering Crocus cartwrightianus, which is also known as "wild saffron".

Planting and careKeep lilies mulched so that their roots are cool. The mulch should feel moist but not wet.Apply a high-potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from early spring until 6 weeks after flowering.
Loosen the soil to a depth of 12 to 15 inches.The deep planting encourages the developing stem to send out roots to help stabilize the plant and perhaps eliminate the need for staking.Also, deep planting keeps lily bulbs cool when temperatures soar.
