Thanks. > Kelly, I am certainly no expert on Crocus, but looking at your mystery Crocus it looks an aweful lot like C. tomassinianus to me. I have checked with pics taken in my own garden and the style and stamen setup match, plus that lovely shading effect with the darker at the tips is the same as one of the varieties as mine (that shading was why it immediately sprang to mind). However...... given I am southern hemisphere I have no way of knowing comparative times for your Crocus. Timing in the season could also be a pointer as teh various progressions of crocus take place throughout the season. It is also similar to C. goulimyi, but given that that will flowerer HERE shortly I think it would be more likely to be tomassinianus which is a spring flowerer. Hopefully that is of some help.
