They’re not early, but they are late. Although I did only plant them about a month ago 🤭 #autumncrocus #biebersteinscrocus #crocusspeciosus #crocusspeciosussubspspeciosus #crocus-speciosus #betterlatethannever
Hmm, this plant record has a lot of colchicum linked to it rather than Crocus speciosus. Probably confusion as both this and Colchicum are a type of autumn Crocus, but they are different genus. The flower parts are different and styles split, like in Saffron, which is also a Crocus (Crocus sativus). However, Crocus speciosus is TOXIC! I’ve updated the name in the encyclopaedia to Bieberstein’s Crocus, named after the first man to describe this plant, and might help tags in the future.
Beautiful, I’m having a rare treat in seeing Sid from Racheybabes earlier and Crocus from you, while having a bit of a late lunch...in between painting the kitchen. Very welcome and always love your detail 😘 x x x
