I second Michaels appreciation.  THE BEST web resource for Crocus cultivars. 

By some telepathic connection I came looking as Hubi was posting.  After and Alpine walk in the Valais a feast of Crocus .... I'm gonna have a good day!  Thanks!

It is great, isn't it, Anne?

I hope Thomas doesn't mind me telling you that he already HAS written a book...
but meantime it is in German only and the translation with assorted botanical terminology is a bit tricky. But he has done it and time is all he needs!!
Hurray for Hubi!!

Thanks Thomas. Wonderful (but also sad) to see so many chrysanthus and biflorus cultivars that both I and my parents used to grow many years ago but that are now unobtainable. If we'd known they wouldn't always be available, I'm sure we'd have made more effort to keep them going, but when you could buy them so easily and so cheaply, who ever thought so many would vanish from the catalogues?
