Crocus tommasianus

 This spring we talked about naturalising Crocus species in lawns.  John 
Grimshaw said that C. tommasianus did not make seed in the UK.   
I have a trial in this subject going since a few years. After a checkup 
yesterday I am glad to report that in our mediterranean climat this species  
(in addition to numerous offshoots) does make abundant seed which is now 
been spread around (added by the lawnmower). However, C. ancyrense does not 
show a single seedpod.
