Crocus tommasinianus Ruby Giant (Fragrant)

Crocus Tommasinianus Ruby Giant | Species Crocus Ruby Giant | Fragrant About as close to the true species as currently available crocuses come, Tommasinianus Ruby Giant is a little taller, with more slender buds than many of the rest of this clan. If you struggle with squirrels digging up your bulbs, try this variety before throwing in the towel on crocuses. (Also, consider buying a large can of cheap red pepper and sprinkle it on the freshly planted soil. Sometimes if you can keep the squirrels away for the first few days, they move on and leave the bulbs alone.) A great naturalizer that spreads gently and even grows well in open woodland sites. Deer resistant.
