Here the picture from the corms from Crocus Spring Beauty as I bought them
The grower from Crocus Spring Beauty says that Crocus minimus makes
much smaller corms as Crocus Spring Beauty
circumstance 5+ for Crocus Spring Beauty and 3,5 - 4 cm for Crocus minimus
he also says that Crocus minimus very slow multiplies by dividing
but that Crocus Spring Beauty multiplies fast
Maybe that Crocus Spring Beauty a hybrid is and not isauricus
and original comes from a found seedling

>> In response to this, I think it was Roland who cited the grower who grows the true Crocus isauricus 'Spring Beauty'. So there evidently is such a thing. But I don't think anyone responded with a source for the general public for this plant.
