John L's isolation up on the Olympian peaks of crocusdom has evidently sheltered him from the goings on in lowland gardens. Yes, there are yellow crocus, crocus with little or no trace of orange/gold/bronze in the color. Maybe we should take up a collection to buy him some of the so-called chrysanthus hybrids such as 'Cream Beauty' and 'Moonlight'. And then there's always the old one named for that crocus guy, Boules or whatever his name was. Sad to say, I no longer grow these. Since he'll probably think these are new and rare, we can offer them in trade for Crocus mathewii.
