Crocus tommasinianus on its second year. Even though these were all from the same labelled bag, it would seem that there are 2 varieties: one with a deeper purple than the other | Balham | #crocus

Aren't they gorgeous? 💜💜💜 I love tommies! The darker purple is 'Ruby Giant'. The lighter one I'm not sure about but it looks similar to mine and I reckon they're 'Barr's Purple'. You'd have to check if there's a glossy silvery sheen to the outside of the petals.

@ublaszko I suspected it’s Ruby’s Giant. But I do love them mixed nonetheless
