"Weedy" Crocus

   We are accustomed to seeing seedlings at a little distance from the  
parent (or a long distance if ants are involved).

I wonder if crocus seedlings are not being recognized because the  
seedpods are formed underground and some of them remain underground.   
The seedlings then would be grouped right around the parent corm and  
would look like vegetative increase.
