  A few comments on names that have been posted:

  C.autumnale Major is a commercial synonym of C. byzantinum.  Foliage is 
very wide an prominently veined, very unlike the narrow smooth leaves of C. 

  C. Conquest is now considered to be Glory of Heemstede.  I was given some 
corms as " Rosy Dream "  that may also be this ( not to be confused with the 
distinct Rosy Dawn )

   C.byzantinum Album is being called Innocence at the National Collection in 
Norfolk England.  Album is inadmissable as a cultivar name since it only 
appeared in print well after 1959, the cut-off date for clonal names using Latin.

   I can certainly second Rick's comments on C. corsicum.  The corms don't 
seem to multiply much, but it is very easily raised from seed ( even dried seed 
exchange seeds ) and quickly comes to flowering size.  The wee goblets are so 
welcome when they appear.
