I do like crocus, but I'll be the first to admit my knoweldge and experience growing them is pretty shallow. However, after seeing the diversity and beauty here in the garden, species and cultivars that I haven't seen before, I'm inspired to grow more in my garden. There are so many good ones available for purchase if you're willing to look a bit, and then the more specialized or collector ones...well, you just have to appreciate them when you see them in someone else's garden!
