Hi Dell & all,
This might be a good place to start:  It's a great article on Crocus on the Royal New Zealand Institute of Horticulture's website.  The article notes that "One of the activities of the RNZIH has been to assemble a list of New Zealand Plant Collections, which collates information on people and institutions who hold collections of particular groups of plants" - to that end, there is a list of crocus in the collection at the end of the article.  C. scharojani (spelled scharojanii) is included as a part of their holdings.

Anyone else interested in Crocus should check out this great article and the LONG list of holdings. 

Good luck in your search!

Dear All,Does anyone know of a source for the above-mentioned Crocus. It seems tobe the only autumn-flowering one which is yellow. Also sounds like it is hard to grow, needing constant moisture - not very hard to provide here.
