Lots of Crocus to see in the Collectio, and some others as well.
Here is the first batch:

Note:
I believe about the name of Crocus E.A. Bowles are still some queries,
that's why I put [-] behind the name.

Crocus adenensis Cam.B. '98
 Crocus biflorus ssp. issauricus Camb. '95
 Crocus biflorus Miss Vain
 Crocus biflorus ssp. weldenii Fairy
 Crocus candidus subflavus
 Crocus chrysanthus Aubade N.J. '95
 Crocus chrysanthus E.A. Bowles [-]
 Crocus chrysanthus E.P. Bowles
 Corydalis bracteata Marina JR '99
 Corydalis wendelboi ssp. wendelboi Nr. 174 JR '01



Hello Luit,
very interesting series.
Would it be possible for you to kindly take pictures of the outer markings of
E.A Bowles and E.P. Bowles and post it?
I'm interested to see the differences.
Pictures found in the web have a poor quality.
Thanks in advance.
Best wishes
Armin

Hello Luc,

Behringmeier is selling "Herald" in their offer ;)
http://http://www.saatgut-shop.com/query.php?cp_sid=44830111c0cd&cp_tpl=main

But now it has "sold out" status. Click on "Blumenzwiebeln/Ausverkauft" and then select "Krokusse", "Botanische Krokusse". The direct link to the picture is not working.

Hello Luit,
thank you I'll wait patiently. :D

Here are some more pictures from the Collection.
I'll try to show a bit more of the different shades in the flowers, because there are coming some questions about.
By taking and showing pictures I learn slowly a bit more about Crocus, which for me just were bulbous flowers.
My apologies for showing some flowers twice in this manner.
In this batch is one "Special" for Thomas with thankful regards!

Crocus biflorus ssp. alexandrii
 Crocus chrysanthus Elegance

 Crocus chrysanthus Moonlight JZ '06

 Crocus chrysanthus Warley

Dominique, most Warley in trade are not real and the one I showed came from Thomas into this collection and is the real one.

Sorry Thomas that I answered this before you could but I I wrote it down before thinking.  :-[ :-[
