Is it a Colchicum? I don't think so. Ina, It's definitely a crocus, and I'm leaning towards Crocus serotinus ssp salzmanii. There are a few different colour forms of it, some with the speckling like yours has on the outer petals. Timing is right, they're in flower here too. A very good reliable flowerer. I hope that is a help? Cheers. Paul T. Canberra, Australia - USDA Zone Equivalent approx. 8/9 Min winter temp -8 or -9°C. Max summer temp 40°C. Thankfully, maybe once or twice a year only.
