Maybe Crocus goulimyi is one of those plants that doesn't like mild 
damp winters.  Here in zone 6a it winters outside (and flowers 
reliably) in Anderson flats in a peat-rich soil mix.  I'm sure it 
would be even happier in a grittier mix.

In that same garden, C. goulimyi barely survived the winter outdoors, 
never flowering after the first year, though very good in the bulb 
frame. Theoretically that is a Zone 7 area. I may try it outdoors 
here once I get the rock garden built. At present it's all in the 
raised beds in the new bulb house.
