Daniel,

for now it is too late (do not recommend) to order and plant crocus.
Where have you sourced your current corms?
Best wishes

Daniel, I have one or two young but flowering banaticus corms for you if you like (not the white one), but as Armin says, you'll have to wait until next year.

They have just finished flowering in the garden. Send me a reminder late next summer, if you are still searching.

yes, nudiflorus is excellent for naturalising, and also produces stolons. it also does not mind wetness in summer, as it is a mountain plant
