Crocuses are an early blooming bulb one has to plant in the fall to see next spring. They're usually 3 to 8 inches tall depending on the variety. They also divided into small colonies that grow each year, but only in soil that's good for them.
Second week of February the yellow ones I'd planted started blooming already. The honey bees went nuts when they found them as they normally do with early blooming plants. Assorted weeds (dandelion, and skunk cabbage), as well Willows are also blooming at this time.
