The Crocus ‘Ard Schenk’ (Chrysanthus Crocus) is a large crystal-white Crocus that appears from a yellow tubular stem that announces the beginning of Spring.
Looking like a big daisy from far away, the Ard Schenk has a golden yellow centre. These are best for naturalising in wildflower meadows to create clusters. Alternatively, plant these bulbs at the front of beds and borders, rockeries, or in pots and containers. For smaller gardens, these could be planted into window boxes or in pots on patios.
To create a cheery display in the garden, plant these bulbs around October time at 5cm deep, making sure the bulbs are completely covered. Try planting the occassional Iris through a blanket of Crocus ‘Ard Schenk’ for a combination of complimentary heights and colours.
