Crocus suworovianus has opened today
My own crossing between Crocus vallicola and scharojanii has shown its noses and will open in a few days.

The first flowering of Crocus vallicola x scharojanii from own seeds 2016.
The scharojanii genes seams to dominate, but in the throat there is typical vallicola markings. There are 3 more flowers coming and it will be exiting to see the variation.
Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. Better pics will follow.

The flowering of the autumn crocuses is in full swing and gives great pleasure, especially the Crocus banaticus stands out due to its extraordinary beauty. This year a small group of white-speckled / striped Banaticus appeared mixed with the normal Crocus banaticus.

I fear that your striped banaticus may unfortunately be virus-infected. Keep them well away from other stock.

The  striped  C. banaticus  of  Ophrys  are  very  lovely, but  I agree with  Steve - they are  virussed  and  it  may  spread  to an ruin all others  in  your  collection.

I used to have banaticus and other autumn crocus blooming in my garden, but I think squirrels must have eaten all the bulbs.  Someone introduced gray squirrels to our island, and gardening has changed.

My patches of colchicums keep expanding, though.

Crocus pulchellus has been good to grow here outside in the garden. This picture was taken last week, but unfortunately mice cut the flowers two nights ago. They didn't even eat them, just cut them. At least least they didn't dig the corms, that was good.
