Old House Gardens
From America’s Expert Source for Heirloom Flower Bulbs

Here you’ll find our VERY rarest bulbs along with late finds and others we simply couldn’t squeeze into our print catalog.

Those marked “Web-Only & Rarest” are sometimes in such short supply that they sell out within days — and some years we can’t offer them at all — so if you see one you like, we recommend you order it now!

Web-Only Crocus
JEANNE D’ARC, 1943        Web-Only

MAMMOTH YELLOW, 1665        Web-Only

CR05SOLD OUT10/$7.7525/$1850/$33.50100/$62250/$140
PAULUS POTTER, 1920        Web-Only
“Ruby-purple,” says Roy Genders. “Almost magenta,” says E.A. Bowles. “Splendid!” says Louise Beebe Wilder. This vibrant, vanishing jewel – lost to us for years but now back thanks to one determined Dutch grower – is the rosiest purple of all the traditional crocus. (To add to its pleasures, learn about the painter it’s named for.) C. vernus, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart to compare.
CR07SOLD OUT5/$510/$9.5025/$21.5050/$40100/$74
PETER PAN, 1943        Web-Only
When ‘Snowbunting’ fades, this magic boy takes over, extending the season’s sparkle. Pair it with ‘Negro Boy’ for a dramatic “Ebony and Ivory.” C. vernus, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart to compare.
CR32SOLD OUT10/$8.7525/$2250/$41100/$76250/$171
C. tommasinianus PICTUS, 1914        Web-Only
Add some zing to your spring with this jewel-box crocus. Its soft lavender petals are tipped with deep purple for a glittering, almost polka-dotted effect. It’s not cheap, but it may be our most exciting crocus, and it self-sows happily! Zones 5a-8a(8bWC), from Holland. Chart to compare.
CR14SOLD OUT3/$11.755/$18.5010/$3525/$79.5050/$147
C. tommasinianus ROSEUS, 1924        Web-Only
A PINK crocus? Not quite, but it’s the closest any crocus gets to pink, a soft lavender-rose that’s utterly unique. Adding to its charms, it opens its petals exuberantly in the sun, making a constellation of tiny pink stars that just gets better every year. Zones 5a-8a(8bWC), from Holland. Chart to compare.
