Crocus 2014

Our warm weather has moved on some of the spring crocus but comparing them with last year there is little difference in flowering time.

The first two are Crocus biflorus ssp. There has been a move to create numerous new species in this group and these will be two of them.​

Crocus biflorus ssp from Turkey Feithye   

 

Crocusbiflorus ssp from Turkey Kahramaranmaras

Crocus biflorus ssp crewii from Turkey Honaz Dag

 

 

Crocus nevadensis from Spain Cazorla two forms

 

 

Crocus biflorus ssp pulchricolor white form from Turkey Ulu Dag

I have changed the second post which is now working but I am afraid when I tried to change the first one it was classed as spam and it was refused.

Nice to see some crocuses in flower! Mine are still only in leaf (outside). Difficult to walk on the lawn though with all the plants starting to show.

I'm not sure what's going on with this crazy system. 

In your first post, Tony, as a moderator all I did was delete your inserted pics from the text box, and then re-inserted them.

Now they work!

Tony, you show such exquisite Crocus, I can identify my favorites among the ones you show as nevadensis and cyprius, wonderful variability on the latter.

thank you,the cyprius are one of my favorites.

Here are a couple more in flower

Crocus pelistericus  

 

Crocus x gothenburgensis , a cross between C.pelistericus and C. scardicus. This particular one seems very close to C. scardicus.

I like the colour of that gothenburgensis. How is the inside?

A couple more Crocus x gotoburgensis. The inside is pretty much like the outside,the markings show through.
