I used to have a friend in Germany (in Bavaria to be precise) who used to plant these so they would bloom each spring. She planted them in the lawn ... not in gardens! Then she'd happilly mow around them because they made her happy. Weird ... but cool! :)

The backlighting in shot 2 and sidelighting in shot 3 is very nice!

That must have been a while back...Monsanto now makes a fertilizer called "Crocus Up" Using this the plants can repel lawnmower blades! :laughing:

Is it common for Crocus' to be planted in lawn instead of garden beds?

:laughing: In answer to your question MA... No, Our lawns are flower free! no Dandelions, daises or any other flower is allowed to mingle on the lawn. It must be a solid sheet of green from end to end. We're organized in that way, flowers know their place! :)

:) It's the same here too ... although a few weeds tend to get in due to the dry spells that last ... oh ... years!

thank Heavens you beamed MA his clothes MAW now I can peek. :p

Here they do plant the crocuses (seems like it should be croci :confused:) on the lawn. by the time you need to mow they are usually finished. I love seeing a lawn flower scattered through it. Hubby has other ideas but we move out the country there will be no more trying to keep everything but grass out of the lawn!
