Dear all;
	IN all the posts I don't think any said it clearly and I hope 
some can give short answers to these questions, all related to Crocus 

	1. Is there more than one clone of saffron?
	2. Are there color forms of Saffron?

	3. The plants sometimes sold by large commercial dealers as 
'white flowered saffron' is actually _____________(fill in the blank)

	I have my thoughts, but let's hear from these list experts.

		Best	Jim W.
