: How soon can I dig an old crocus bed up to thin. I have a green plant with a five pointed leaf and white stripes on the leaf. What is the proper name for this guy.

: Thanks

Hi Dennis,

You can dig and divide your crocus when they are done blooming or wait until the fall. If you dig them now and there is still foilage attached that hasn't turned yellow, leave the foilage on as it feeds the bulb for next years bloom.

There is Devil's tongue that is a red lettuce or a gold hot pepper.

There is also a devils tongue that is also called snake palm - Amorphophallus rivieri.

Do you mean mother in law's tongue or sansevieria? Click on 'Sansevieria' here and look at these.

Hope this helped,
