Crocus 2023
« on: January 02, 2023, 03:37:25 PM »
After a particularly mild night on New Year's Eve, it was a great surprise that suddenly a lot of bulbs came out of the ground. Almost out of nowhere to sudden bloom...A splash of sun on New Year's Day and therefore under enormous time pressure, due to a number of family parties that were still on the program, quickly went outside with the camera...
The first one is Crocus sieheanus . This Crocus  is a remnant from the fantastic collection of Hendrik Van Bogaert.The label says :Çaykayak - 1650m .

After a short check of the pots, more flowers appeared. In the same color range but with a touch of black : Crocus gembosii 'Sunspot' .

IRG 157 January 2023
  We have two articles this month, firstly from Jānis Rukšāns on a new crocus hybrid raised by Dirk Schnabel in Germany and secondly, a report from Panayoti Kelaidis on the Patagonian plants which are doing well in the Denver Botanic Garden.

In the afternoon, the sun shone and the temperature in the greenhouse reached + 9 C - the crocuses started to open their flowers and I, in turn, photographed them and also managed to examine some before they closed firmly again. It seems that it will be one of the earliest seasons and if the weather conditions do not change, it will be in full bloom already at the beginning of March, which I will, of course, report on.

Those are all stunning, Janis.
Sadly C. gembosii is not on our "Allowed list" to bring in as seed - if it was ever available. of course :o
cheers

Very exciting, I just noticed that my single plant of Crocus scharojanii flavus I self-pollinated last summer seems to be developing a seedpod.

Five years ago I planted two different C.tommasinianus but they look the same to me.
The one in the first picture should be 'Barr's Purple' and in the second picture 'Whitewell Purple'.
Third picture shows both.
How should they differ? If they are the same, which one are they? Or are they something else?

Leena, this is a question that has exercised forumists for ages!
Start reading here: https://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=4369.msg139693#msg139693

 Whitewell Purple has a dark tube.  All yours have  a white tube, so are probably Barrs Purple!

Maggi, thank you so much! I see that these two have been mixed up before.  ::) Thanks for the link to the older discussion.
Yes, tubes in mine are white, so probably then 'Barr's Purple'. :)

Here are two other nice crocuses.
Crocus x leonidii 'Little Amber', I like this. :)
Crocus korolkowii 'Yellow Tiger'

a few Crocus nivalis from last sunday on Chelmos and Kyllini, GR. It was cold and late spring as all over the Balkans.
