Crocuses perform best in well drained soils in partial to full sun. Plant crocuses in clusters of 25 or more corms for maximum visual impact. Good garden sites include perennial flower beds, rock gardens, and among low-growing groundcovers. (Do not plant crocuses in the lawn. The grass will have to be mowed before the crocus foliage has died down.) Plant corms 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart.
