Spring and Dutch crocuses are welcome sights in the early spring. Autumn crocuses bloom while dormant, just after you get them into the ground in the fall.

For many gardeners, large-flowering crocuses are one of the most welcomed and familiar flowers of early spring. Size varies depending on the variety. Colchicum corms might bloom in your wheelbarrow if you don't plant them right away in the fall! Autumn crocuses are poisonous if ingested.
