Crocus Flowers 

Crocus flowers are some of the spring signs of spring wildflowers.  Protection from the wet, thick fog in the woods was a decision easily made by me this morning.  I kept my eyes out for new signs of spring.

Flowers of Woodland Scrubs & Meadows

This is the Crocus vernus (Spring Crocus, Giant Crocus). Crocus flowers are beautiful, spring perennial plants in Wisconsin where I live.  Although, in other places they can grow in summer and fall.

The plants are in the iris family and are native to woodland, scrub, and meadows.

Colors

They come in predominantly lilac, mauve, yellow, and white.

They Grow From

Crocus grows from corms.  Corms look like a bulb and a tuber, sometimes known as a bulbotuber.
