I haven't tried Crocus goulimyi here in central Indiana.  Maybe I should?

I have had nudiflorus and a nice clone of kotschyanus, but perhaps our 
drought is to blame for their not appearing so far this autumn.

I had a batch of speciosus naturalized in the lawn, but it gradually 
disappeared.  Perhaps the grass crowded it out.
