Crocus tomasinianus.

the crocus finished blooming earlier this week.

all in all, i'm extremely pleased with their performance. there were so many flowers that i think every one of the bulbs i planted sprouted and bloomed. i know for a fact that several had multiple blooms.

now i just have to be patient and wait eleven months to see whether they return and whether they multiply.

one final note, the foliage is rather attractive, also. the grass-like leaves radiate out from the bulb -- deep green with a center stripe of white, almost silver.
