I am really fascinated how variable crocus are!

Actually Crocus imperati is in flower also in my garden (together with the last dark Crocus laevigatus).
Thanks to the very generous donor ;)

No crocuses in the garden yet, but two pots of Crocus korolkowii and one of Crocus vernus showing colour in the frame.

I had not heard of Augis bulbs before this year and decided to buy some Crocus and Frits.

There was a bargain 100 large corms of Crocus korolkowii for €10.00  I gave some to firends and planted the remainder in pots.  

The first two shots are of Crocus korolkowii from the SRGC Discussion Weekend in 2010 - 'Kiss of Spring' & 'Dark Throat'  The remaining shots are the unnamed from Augis - will certainly be ordering more bulbs this year.
