I received several responses confirming *Crocus sieberi ssp sieberi.* Also
on the SRGC forum that  the flower that bloomed last November was
indeed *Crocus
laevigatus*, so the collector mixed the seed.  Good learning experience.
It was quite insteresting trying to figure out what was in the pot..

I am ready for more Crocus seed!

Hardy bulbs and seed seem almost as rare as hens teeth on the BX, hint,

Thank you all
