Crocus athous (Code: 192)

Crocus athous
zoom Zoom image
Crocus athous turned out to be similar to C. atticus in its coarsely reticulated corm tunics that though end abruptly and do not form the prolonged neck so characteristic of C. atticus. The throat in C. athous is very variable – white, slightly tinted yellow only at the edge, to yellow with a wide white edge. It is an easy crocus that can tolerate summer moisture and partial shade and can be grown in the open garden, too, just like its relatives do. In cultivation it makes large corms and increases by splitting and well sets seed. It has very small area of distribution limited with south end of Athos peninsula (Ortodoxal churches monk state) with very restricted possibilities to enter (not allowed for woman at all) and is extremely rare both in wild and in cultivation.
