Some special Crocus spp. that have bloomed during lockdown in Auckland. First two are Crocus aleppicus from upper Galilee (Oron Peri), flowering now; then C. biflorus melantherus from Marcus Harvey flowering 24th April; the last two photos are C. kotschyanus from Lebanon (Oron Peri) flowering second week of April.

Nice to see some crocuses in bloom, i also grow kotschyanus from Oron's seeds and i find the central pattern interesting which isn't a feature of other kotschyanus i bought.

Nice crocus, Anthony, nice to see you posting again.

I think this is Crocus pulchellus albus; it was a stray cormlet potted up a couple of years ago and flowered yesterday for te first time,
cheers

Very similar to one that is flowering now in an unlabelled pot.

Some autumn flowering Crocus flowering now in Adelaide, South Australia.

1. C. goulimyi

Sorry Jamus, somewhat late I know, but my goulimyi are flowering now so I was looking back - the one on the left in your image is very pretty with its two sets of five petals. Is that a stable feature?
