We offer Crocus speciosus 'Aino' and 'Albus', and ssp. xantholaimos 
(whose relatively petite stature recommends it for rock gardens and 
such).  Occasionally we list other selections.  Of course this year's 
crop is already back in the ground.


>>Crocus speciosus is indeed a wonderful, widely adapted plant, but 
>>it's hard to acquire because of its fall-blooming habit, which 
>>means it doesn't ship along with all the other Dutch-grown bulbs. 
>>There are several named varieties, such as 'Conquest', 'Oxonian', 
>>and 'Cassiope', and one I have from Janis Ruksans is called 
>>'Lakeside Beauty'. Among American suppliers, they can sometimes be 
>>had from McClure and Zimmerman.
