    Thanks for posting a picture of Crocus cartwrightianus CEH .  I had lost 
the label showing the source of this compact and very colorful form which is 
quite distinct from other cartwrightianus collections here.  They do well in 
the open garden.

    Still very presentable also are C. medius  ' Millesimo ' (much better 
than the virused commercial form I used to struggle with ), C. niveus in white 
and pale mauve forms and the always dependable early November C. ochroleucus.  
The last always looks frail but never fails to increase or flower well in the 
open, even after a week of frosty nights.

   Kudos for the C moabiticus.  I'm envious!
