This form markedly differs from existing stocks in having bright reddish purple flowers in a large umbel up to 20 cm in diameter on a 20-30 (!) cm long stem, which raises the flower head well above the leaves. A true gem named by me in honour of my great friend and travel companion Henrik Zetterlund as subsp. henrikii but DNA showed very minor differences from typical karataviense, so name was changed to cultivar level. From Tovaksai, the Karzhantau mnt. range, E of Tashkent.

I discovered this unusual Allium species growing wild on almost bare shaly slopes during my first trip to Iran. I immediately understood that it is new species, and really, only 2 years later it was published by Reinhard Fritsch. Its name means "Onion from white hills". Regardless of harsh conditions in the wild, it is good grower in my collection, having very unusually shaped leaves. On pictures you can see its leaves, flowers and how joyful I was finding it.

A Californian species similar to A. anceps and A. platycaule. The most obvious difference is the habitat - vernally moist, rocky clay flats. Petals are broader and flowers composed in 5 cm umbels on 10 cm scapes. Their colour ranges from palest pink to pale violet, with rose pink dominating. Unlike its relatives the heads do not break off in order to disperse the seed

Narrowly linear leaves, a first prostrate and later ascending, thin scape, and large flowers showing a very specific broad shape of tepals characterize this small species. Allium oreophilum is a very variable species concerning stature of the plants, shape and colour of leaf. Flowers generally are very bright reddish purple, although between my seedlings rarely appear individuals with very soft light pink flower colour. Offered stock is very dwarf and with brightest colour. Certainly worth of cultivars name. Flowers tested as food had a very pleasant taste and are useful as spice.

This species was published by me only recently. It has very limited area in "Russian" Caucasus, where is known only from 3 general localities. Earlier was regarded as very disjunct population of A. blanda although already in 1937 Russian botanist, great specialist of Anemone - S.Yuzepchuk expressed doubt about its placing under name of A. blanda. I was growing it for 40 years and all this time I knew that it is very special, but only very recently I had time to publish it. Easy separable from A. blanda by shape of its tubers, which are branch-like, not knobbly as in A. blanda. Good increases by splitting. If you prefair multiplying by seeds - must be grown isolat3ed from A. blanda abnd A. caucasica, because easy hybridise with them.

Although by flowers and leaf shape this anemone resembles A. blanda, it has very different and strange tubers (you can see on one of pictures). It comes from S Turkey and I collected only one plant with soft pink flowers, progeny of which is offered here although I pictured at same place others with white, blue, violet flowers, too, but no one was collected because at that time I was not so interested in anemones. It is possible that wild population now could be destroyed because at my visit there new large damm crossing valley was under construction at its locality. Good increaser, beautiful colour and very limited stock.

It is forming clusters of very heavily-chequered violet-rose flowers . This is one of the most intensely chequered Colchicums. Small blue-green leaves never becomes floppy. Recent genetic research indicates that this is an old horticultural hybrid between variegatum and autumnale, though it has long been accepted as a species. It remains an excellent, free-flowering, easy plant, making fabulous flowers and performing well in a variety of garden conditions. It is deservedly one of most popular Colchicums, but is one that has become increasingly scarce now.

Usually with purple-pink and white chequered flowers in autumn. It is outstandingly prolific and unusually variable in depth of colour here and occasionally between seedlings there appear some plants with pure white flowers. I'm not specially selecting this species by flower colour, so not ask me for white forms. It may be a long shot to expect whites from seed but you can hope. Flowers are borne in early to mid autumn. It is hard to over praise this plant. Likes a deep. fertile, well drained sunny spot.

From gardeners standpoint all bulbous Corydalis can be divided into two large groups: woodlanders and steppelanders. Woodland species prefer peaty soil which never dries out completely and a light shade. They must be planted as soon as possible. If tubers look overdried, we recommend you to soak them in water for several hours before planting. Eastern woodlanders from Siberia, Far East, China are more susceptible to drying out than western woodlanders from Europe, Caucasus, Turkey . Corydalis solida cultivars belong to same group. Steppelanders or ‘bulb-belt’ species generally are sun-lovers and need dryer summer conditions . We harvest them annually and keep out of soil in a bulb shed.

Flowers yellow with a pink spur and a purple nose, one of the most beautiful and rarest corydalis discovered by me in Ber-Kara (Black Stream) gorge, the Kara-tau mnt. range at 1700-2000m. Easy growing. According to Henrik Zetterlund: “a plant you will never forget if you ever get a chance to see it”. Earlier regarded as subsp. of schanginii, but last researches found that it is completely different spacies although it can hybridise with typical schanginii

This is a late autum blooming species found in stony places and low scrub across a wide area from western Syria (in the Aleppo region – hence the name) into Jordan, Lebanon and Israel, but some of the reported locations belong to other, as yet undescribed species (must be published soon by other botanists, so I cancelled my work on them). It blooms from November and although flowers are quite small but they are borne in clusters of several to each corm. The flower colour is generally white, variably marked with a little yellow in the throat below a divided orange style and yellow-orange anthers, sometimes with black in connective. On the exterior there is usually some purple striping, especially towards the tube however this too varies. It needs dry and hot summer conditions, left all the year round in greenhouse it blooms very abundantly

Its main feature separating it from all other samples of C. kotschyanus sensu lato is forming of leaves already during blooming. It has different chromosome number, too, but there are other morphological features separating both species, as length of stigma and its branching and position relating anthers, although they are something more variable.

At present still it is "nomen nudum" - not officially published name, but I hope to work on its publication this winter. It is growing wild on Chios Island and is quite variable - flowers are from pure white to dark striped purple and its anthers are yellow or black - in almost any population you can find plants with both anther colours. My stock was collected in spring, so no special selection by flowers was made, and I didn't separate them during cultivation, so don't ask me for special colours and I can't guarantee that corms which you will receive will have black anthers - such were in average around 30 % of collected corms and same proportion remain between their seedlings.

This is a very nice crocus, blooming with moderately large flowers that are carried on comparatively long tubes. Quite often the outer segments open wider than the inner ones. It is a good grower in the greenhouse, well multiplies by corm splitting and sets seed readily, although hand pollination is essential for two reasons – firstly, the species blooms here late when natural pollinators for the most part are absent, and secondly, in milder climates it easily hybridises with other species. Not difficult but must be kept somewhat cooler in summer than its relatives.

This is typical, true Crocus pallasii and comes from its locus classicus in Crimea, now occupied by Russia. I succeed to collect this crocus really in the last moment before Russia occupied peninsula. C. pallasii was described just from Crimea, so my plants belong to true, typical species. Flowers are mostly lilac of various shades, rarely white, the throat usually whitish with deep purple stripes. Stigma trilobed, deep red levelling with the anthers. Flower segments in the Crimean plants are generally broader than in those from Turkey, which most likely belongs to another species.

Originally it was collected out of flowers between ruins of ancient Ariasos North of Antalya and when bloomed in my collection, turned extremely variable - some individuals resembled Crocus assumaniae, growing far to the East, few had colour and stigma as in C. kofudagensis (growing far to the West), but most of them resembled some of Turkish crocuses at present regarded as C. pallasii aff. Revisiting of site at blooming time confirmed huge variability of this population. Is it the place where met all those species or something else - I don't know.

It is diminutive relative of C. laevigatus from Crete. Like all the species that enter winter with well-developed leaves, here it can be grown only under cover where it perfectly blooms usually starting from the end of October (although the earliest record is from 5th October, 2011) and finishing in December. C. pumilus is reported as sufficiently hardy, but here in our long and as a rule harsh winters it can suffer from frosts. It very well sets seed and multiplies by corm division.

There are two, geographically isolated populations of what was once thought to be all Crocus robertianus. Most likely both represent two distinct although morphological similar species. Certainly, scientific examination of the DNA confirms that this southerly collection is not the same species as robertianus from type locality in Pindus Mountains. I only recently got material from the type locality of robertianus so further research will be applied. Offered stock comes from southern population and was collected not far from Varnakovo Monastery,

Another member of large "speciosus" aliance. This species grow in the wild at low altitudes and due its deep yellow throat something resembles highland C. xantholaimos, but contrary to it has distinctly more branched stigma overtopping anthers. At present it is known only from two spots around Sakarya in NW Turkey. As it is typical for autumn species growing at low altitudes, it blooms later than its relatives from high altitudes. Very limited stock.

This stock of C. salzmannii of unknown origin I got under name of "Crocus clusii" from my great friend Zhirair Basmajyan (Armenia) who tragically was killed last summer by some young robber and burnt together with his summerhouse and all collection of harvested bulbs. From the first blooming I put under doubt its name, because it formed long leaves during blooming, although at start was leafless. The identification was re-checked by anthers which in salzmannii is much longer than in true C. clusii. Although corm tunics are not very typical for salzmannii, they lay inside variability for C. salzmannii. As they are clone, I decided to name this stock after my late friend.

Although more and more crocus species show that they occasionally are forming side growing stolones, this one form of crocus from so named "speciosus group" collected at very high altitudes (2300-2500 m) on grassy meadow in NW Iran, is distinctly stoloniferous (see attached picture where you can see small corm which flowered, long stolone + contractile root), making long side growing stolones and it blooms from even very small corms. In wild it is growing together with C. gilanicus. Very limited stock!

This is one of the first crocuses to start flowering after the summer rest. Similar to C. vallicola but without the conspicuous wispy tips of the perianth segments. Usually flowers are white, more or less lilac striped, especially in the throat, but between them can occur some lilac toned individuals. Corm lies on its side and needs dryer growing conditions.

Earlier regarded as a subsp. of C. pallasii and distinguished from the type by a long persistent „neck” of old leaf bases. The flowers are lovely light violet marked and feathered with darker lines, darker in the throat, tepals generally narrower than in C. pallasii but wider than in C. dispathaceus. This stock was collected in Lebanon.

This beautiful crocus was originally described by B. Mathew in his Monograph as subspecies of C. speciosus but according to new approach to Crocus taxonomy now must be regarded as species. Stock was collected by me just on its locus classicus. Flowers are comparatively smaller with deep yellow throat and many-branched stigma hided deep between anthers. It is blooming very long time and sometimes here winter starts when still last flowers not wilted and they are going under snow.

This crocus species is the most easterly growing representative from C. speciosus group. It is easy separable from another Iranian species of same group - C. archibaldiorum by position of stigma and from most other relatives by usually purple striped upper cataphyll. Flowers are attractive, violet, beautifully veined in a darker shade of the same colour. All of the six, quite evenly-sized, petals are veined with pale yellow inner base, and are set around yellow anthers which in turn ring around an orange-yellow, trifid style which is further sub-divided just at its tips. The style usually exceeds the length of the anthers. The purple-striped upper cataphyll is not always that obvious and additionally, it does vary substantially according to the age of the flower.

Practically unknown in cultivation crocus earlier wrongly regarded as Turkish form of C. adamii up to finding, that it has completely different genotype and belongs to new, unknown before species allied neither to biflorus or adamii, but closer to C. danfordiae and some other typically Turkish crocus species. Very beautiful and variable in colour. I don't know any other offer of it before me. Very few!

C. alexandri from the biflorus group is easily to identify because at present there are known only two species with a white throat. The other is C. weldenii, but its leaves have 1 or 2 prominent ribs in the lateral channels. In the garden C. alexandri is an easy grower and according to E. A. Bowles, they “make splendid garden plants, flowering rather late”. My plants comes from Mt. Falakro in Makedonia (Greece).

The plants grown in horticulture as Crocus antalyensis have been separated off by me as a new species - Crocus antalyensioides. The new species has a distribution within Turkey which is much more to the north of the range of what is now regarded as proper C. antalyensis. C. antalyensioides is certainly easier and hardier in cultivation as well as being more robust in growth with larger flowers which may explain its recent, wider spread in cultivation. In nature I found only its blue forms with rare albinos occuring between seedlings. What exactly is yellow forms - I don't know. May be it is wider variation of colour in nature, may be they rised in cultivation and really are hybrids with closely related C. mouradii because they appeared in seed-raised stock of the blue form of Crocus antalyensioides which in turn was raised from a stock originally produced by Willem van Eeden in the Netherlands. The yellow forms vary from strong deep yellow, like flavus, to paler primrose forms. Requires deep planting, I'm using 20 cm deep pots, placing corms at depth of 10-15 cm, then they forms large corms and abundantly blooms. Shallower planted are good increasers, but forms smaller corms which produce less flowers.

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.

It has been known quite well and is being grown in several collections for some time already but then it was regarded as a white form of C. punctatus. When looking more closely the differences are easily seen. The anthers in C. punctatus always have black basal lobes, never seen in C. babadagensis, and their tips are never greyish-tinted.

C. balansae is easily recognizable and separable from its close relative C. olivieri by its much-branched style that is divided into 12 to 15 branches. During flowering it requires lots of water as in the wild it sometimes grows in spots that get flooded in early spring, but summers there are hot and dry. It is not commercial form but originating from Samos Island in E Aegean Sea, where it is growing together with C. seisumsiana and some autumn blooming crocuses.
