A Great Naturalizer
Backlit with the sun, the charming blossoms of Crocus Blue Marlin take on the elegance of a hand-painted lamp shade. Soft lilac and purple striations grace the outer petals that open to glowing white interiors with a dark yellow eye peeking from the base. Slender grass-like foliage is etched with a central silver stripe on each blade. Naturalizes readily.

Plant in fall in well-drained, sandy soil in full sun to partial shade. Plant bulbs 3" deep and 3" apart. Hold off on mowing the lawn in spring until the crocus foliage begins to die back. Interested in forcing bulbs? Visit our Useful Links page.
