This is not personal information, but has been taken from an article 
Mat Murray wrote in the Spring 2000 Crocus Group Newsletter.

Mat lived near Sydney Australia - regular rainfall, warm humid 
summers and frost-free winters. (He has since moved to the mountains.)

C. speciosus, C. pulchellus and C. tommasinianus were easy. C. 
imperati was very successful.

commercial cultivars of C. chrysanthus and C. vernus were not - they 
flowered once and died out.

He analysed his results, and realized that the species doing well for 
him were  mediterranean ones, particularly the fall and winter 
flowering ones.
