Crocus tommasinianus "Ruby Giant" or Crocus vernus spec. ?
Flowers later than tommasinianus.
Unfortunately, the systematics of Crokus is very difficult for me... but I'm trying to learn...

Thanks for yout answer :-)

Some say that "Ruby Giant" does not belong to tommasinianus but to vernus.... which is correct?
