The perfect way to welcome spring is by planting generous amounts of early-spring bulbs, like this new crocus variety. Yalta readily pushes its bicolor blooms up through snow to decorate the landscape as early as February. Preferring sunny sites, its silvery outer petals shimmer and shine when the sun hits them. Inside, rich blue-violet petals give the blooms a dynamic appearance that really pops when shown in groups or mass plantings. As with other crocus cultivars, Yalta looks best as an early-season border, walkway accent or between evergreen shrubs and deciduous trees. For an informal, carefree look, gently toss handfuls of bulbs and plant them where they lay.
