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'?

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.

Beautiful but it isn't 'Snow Bunting' which has black stripes rather than a bluish blotch. I think it is probably 'Ard Schenk'.

@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!

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.

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.
