@hkyfvr don’t you just love discovering something you’d forgotten about 😛

Yes I sure do. I was excited to see it fully bloomed. I have a few others in another spot that are just starting up now. This little one shot right up on its own in a different spot. 👍👍😊 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr are they as easy to grow as the spring types? Think I may have to add some for autumn interest 🤭

Have never had the Spring ones. These grow healthy wide dark green leaves in the spring. That dies off and the flowers grow 3 months later. The flowers have no foliage as it has already grown. Just a stem and a bloom. Really neat. 👍😊 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr they sound quite fascinating! Another of your plants I’m going to have to try 🤭

Have had these for over 20 years. They used to have a horticultural sale in the plaza where I worked and you could buy cuttings and divided plants as well as potted plants. I got these there and a few other perennials as well. Always looked forward to that sale every year. 👍😊 @kez001uk

The foliage comes up in the Spring and just the flower in the Fall. Different than the usual 😊 @nsouza

Thanks. They do kind of look like tulips. They don’t last as long though. 💕😊 @kez00uk.

Will let you know. May be frost tonight. 🙄 @gjones

Yes we can get frost but usually not this early. We often get a lot of warm days in September. Usually the kids go back to school in shorts for a while. We are getting 26 degree temps on Tuesday then a high of only13 the next few days. It is going down to 0 another night later this week. Weird weather. My container plants are all covered or in the garage tonight. ☹️🍁🥶 @gjones

That’s what I like about them. They add a little Spring before Winter comes. 🤩💕🍁 @gjones Thanks.

These are awesome, can they be grown in colder areas . Central Manitoba. Zone 3?

Not sure. If regular spring crocuses grow there then these should. The Spring foliage on this plant is very sturdy and frost tolerant. Thanks 💕😊 @wendyflintoft
