In the SRGC Forum http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?action=forum particularly in the extensive Crocus section http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?board=10.0 we are fortunate to have Janis Rucksans share with us his thoughts on many plants as well as tales of his many travels to research crocus in the wild.This means we are able to see and discuss many "new" species as they are found and learn a great deal about their individual features. For instance, Janis first showed us the plant now named as C. macedonicus in the forum as C. pallasii. (I remind PBSers that the SRGC Forum is open to all -one need not be registered to read it.) As you might imagine, the subject of taxonomy can create spirited debate! SRGC member Ibrahim Sozen, who often accompanies Janis in the field, has a terrific website with details of all these crocus, plus a wide range of super photos - I commend it to you - http://crocusmania.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/… M.Y.
