  I  keep hoping that someone will think its a good idea to have an Aberdeen trial ground for such gems.

Our autumn crocus season has been rather dismal, but one decent bloom on this one I got as C. cancellatus but I'm told that it is a form of Crocus niveus,

This clump of Crocus flavus is unfortunately under a Mexican Hawthorn and the fallen fruit is the same color as the crocus flowers, so sometimes they go unnoticed for awhile!
