The scoop on Tommy Crocus Ruby Giant

Not grown in this country as widely as should be the case, Ruby Giant is perhaps the best know of the tommy crocuses. These petite, graceful flowers, with slender necks and remarkably sturdy constitutions, weather late winter cold and snow with aplomb.

Why Grow Tommy Crocuses?

  • Tommy crocuses produce some of the first color in spring gardens and are tiny jewel-like flowers on slender stems
  • Tommies spread by bulbs offsets (baby bulbs) and by seed for steady naturalizing
  • These tough little flowers can manage freezing temperatures and snow, and still bloom beautifully
  • These crocuses seem to be less appealing to squirrels so if that's been a problem previously, these could be the answer

Consider planting these rosy purple crocuses where you'll be able to see the light play on them early or late in the day (which in spring can mean 4:30pm) - the petal shade is magical.
