Enjoyed Antigoni's photo of Crocus hadriaticus in the wild. This is 
one of the easiest fall crocuses to grow. In cultivation it sets 
plenty of seed so is usually available through exchanges. A few named 
selections have been made in England, distinguished mostly by having 
larger, more substantial flowers. Here in northwestern Oregon it does 
well in the open garden and can be grown in grassy areas (as it can 
be seen in Greece). It will flower the third year from seed.
