'Miss Vain' hasn’t had flowers for a little while so pleased to see them back this year 🤍 pure white form, with a pure white centre inside (no yellow) #crocus #crocusmissvain #crocusbiflorus #crocus-biflorus #crocusbiflorusmissvain
I can see why shes Vain lol
She was showing all her glory today, pure white interior, will post a pic tmrw of her @cyndi
She’s a beauty Kerry 🤍🤍 @kez001uk
Can't wait to see.
These ended up being pure white inside... Stunner in a pot 😍 #crocusmissvain #crocusbiflorus #crocus-biflorus #crocusbiflorusmissvain
Still trying to identify which #crocus this is.
Could be Crocus biflorus 'Miss Vain'.
Very nice 👍
These #crocus pots turned out much better than I expected 😀 #crocusmissvain #crocusbiflorus #crocus-biflorus #crocusbiflorusmissvain
Still not sure which variety they should be though. @tiggrx they turned out white in the end rather than creamy. Do you think they may still be 'Ard Schenk'?
Very pretty Rich 👍
It might well be 'Ard Schenk' but I'm not totally sure. Is the centre of the flower yellow (it looks like it probably is)?
Thanks @tiggrx - I'll take a look inside them, been out a couple of times to check but they are always closed 😒 - hoping for some sun to inspect closer.
Well this has made my day ❤️
Beautiful but it isn't 'Snow Bunting' which has black stripes rather than a bluish blotch. I think it is probably 'Ard Schenk'.
Rather lovely 😍
They look fab 👍
@tiggrx oh, well that's strange as I got them from the RHS and it said snow bunting on the label 🤔. I'll correct the tag then!
Thanks @tiggrx 👍🏼
A high proportion of the crocus bulbs sold are wrongly named. You were lucky to get a cultivar of the same colour. I often get yellow when I bought blue or some such.

Thanks @tiggrx 👍🏼 - I'll take a look.
Hope the weather doesn't damage them
Still waiting for mine to make an appearance!
More crocus pots coming to life. This one is a Snow Crocus - white petals, with purple brush strokes on the outside at the base, and yellow centre 🤓. Planted 27th September.
