Amazing to still see snow when it has been so warm here today. Janis your Crocus veluchensis hybrid is beautiful, with the red stigmata peeping out. Very sorry to hear of your virus problems but thankful that you are so careful.

Photos from the second site of C.veluchensis.

nice colours on these--and i'm glad to see someplace with even more snow than i have ;) --here its nearly all gone except some deep shade places where it was piled up and shady low ground areas in the bush--its been near/over 20C for a few days, and several more to come...

In our garden it is autumn and the autumn crocus are out in force!
I've posted pics to the "April in the Southern Hemisphere Thread": http://www.srgc.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=5185.30 reply #44!

My small clump of Crocus pulchellus was covered up by a rather vigorous Happlopappus coronopifolius!

Janis, where are your C.veluchensis from originally? Are they all from the Rodopi?
Flowering here now, where last week children were still sledging- C.veluchensis on the piste  ;)
