King of the Striped Crocus

King of the Striped Crocus

A sweet treat for hungry bees!

Early flowers in the springtime are a treat--and King of the Striped is especially satisfying for people and beneficial bees. Gorgeous purple and white striped flowers erupt out of the ground in early spring. When planted en masse or as groundcover, they create a blanket of blue. These low maintenance charmers naturalize very well, coming back year after year.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
