One of the advantages of keeping records is being able to identify plants years after their introduction to my gardens. I know from my “Fall 2006 Bulb Order” spreadsheet, that these cuties are Crocus tommasinianus. And from the zero in the price column, I know that they were freebies. What I didn’t remember was that they were billed as “Species Mixed Crocus”.
When I see the word “mixed” in a description, I expect more than one color, don’t you?
Regardless, their cheerful lavender blooms are welcome after a long, dreary winter.
