It is finally feeling like spring here at the PSU Campus!! The Crocus are in full bloom & are spectacular up close & personal. In front of Prospect Dining Hall, directly in front of the warmth of the south facing brick wall, you will find both Crocus vernus ‘Mammoth Yellow’ and a Giant Dutch Crocus,  Crocus vernus ‘Flower Record’. Popping up their brightly colored heads in early spring, crocus is extremely cold hardy and one of the earliest bulbs to bloom . Once established, they are care-free, multiply over the years and flower every spring. Crocus will naturalize readily on the edge of the property, in wooded areas or in the garden border.
