Crocus pallasii aff. Labranda (Code: 104)

Crocus  pallasii aff. Labranda
zoom Zoom image
A beautiful autumn-flowering species with slender light lilac-blue flowers nicely lightly marked with parallel violet stripes. In the centre bright yellow anthers and a bright red stigma. My stock comes from near Labranda in SW Turkey where it grows in very stony clay ground. By other travelers it is reported as the best "pallasii" ever seen. Unfortunately its wild population is almost destroyed by repeated attacks of wild boars, that only few plants growing deep in minor rock splits too hard even for boars tooth, escaped this fate. I collected from those few seedpods from which was raised my stock. Certainly it needs own name as a new species. Very limited stock.
