This is one of the most beautiful spring blooming crocuses, known only from few points in SW Turkey. Unfortunately the main locality from where comes offered plants where it was growing together with autumn blooming C. nerimaniae now is reported as completely destroyed by wild boars and logging of forest. The amount of black in flowers throat varies by intensity and shade.

Turkish so named "chrysanthus" belongs to several different species, many still are not published, but they all has stigma ending below or at tips of anthers and not overtop them as in European plants. Offered sample was collected between Hadim and Bozkir, around Gevne Beli, at altitude c.1800 m during my first trip to Turkey.

Crocus chrysanthus is one of the best-known and most popular crocuses with gardeners. Its bright yellow flowers shine in the garden from afar. Some of C. chrysanthus s.l. forms are widely used in breeding and there have been raised many lovely cultivars. Offered form was collected at Greek Macedonia and belongs to true chrysanthus. Note the position of stigma which in typical chrysanthus from Europe mostly well surpasses anthers or less often is level with their tips. Those from Turkey grown under this name belongs to several other species and in general their stigmas ends below tips of anthers. Offered form is one of the best growers both in garden and in pots.

Most stocks in the trade offered as C. crewei with the true species share only the black anthers and as a rule are autumn blooming C. melantherus. Some other species from W Turkey with black in anthers sometimes are offered under this name, too. Plants offered here by me are true species, some corms of which were collected in Denizli Province (TULA-011) and later carefully multiplied, but still the stock is very limited.

This tiny species from Cyprus belongs to my favourites for its large bright reddish orange throat and blackish purple “tongue” over the outer base of the deep violet-blue flower segments. A small plant and naturally very small corms, but regardless of size - blooms very abundantly. Not very hardy, therefore protection during winter spells is very recommended.

In general C. dalmaticus is fairly similar to some forms of C. atticus, only the backs of its outer segments are paler, with a buff or silvery shading, and also its leaves are narrower. The style in C. dalmaticus is fairly slender and deeply trilobed, whereas in C. atticus it has a frilly appearance. The true species is easy to grow both in the open garden and in the greenhouse. It increases fast by splitting and abundantly sets seed. It does not like too dry conditions in summer, so it is better to take the pots out of the greenhouse during the rest period.

This light blue and very uniform stock was collected near Newshehir and its area lies something out from other C. danfordiae samples growing in West area of this species. By my opinion under name of C. danfordiae hides at least two different species.forming own areas in West of Turkey and in Central Turkey, but more research still is required.

Known only from one mountain top in SW Turkey this species was named after famous Australian Crocus enthuziast Otto Fauser. I found it with the help of Ibrahim Sözen who had enough courage to drive our small car along a terrible dirt road almost up to the very top of Bencik Dağı, where the searched-for crocus was in full bloom growing together with C. fleischeri on an extremely stony slope. I think that this was one of the stoniest habitats with annulate crocuses ever seen by me. It is tolerant of cold winters but needs hot and dry summers, although I. Sözen reports that it grows easily in his near-Istanbul garden where occasional summer rains are not rare. With me it fares very well in pots that are kept all year round in the greenhouse. Very limited stock.

Flowers very large brightest yellow, even with an orange tint, very rarely nicely creamy, sweetly scented. Still a great rarity, although not very difficult in the garden. Possibly better to grow without annual lifting. Blooms late. Taxonomical status is unclear - it is very different from type Crocus cvijicii growing in North Macedonia. Plants from another Greek population at very West (Grammos Mountains) will be soon published (not by me) as Crocus gramensis. Looks very similar to it, and could be even identical - then name will be changed. This one comes from Vermio Mountain ridge.

Although this species is named after “bad smell” of its flowers, I never sensed this and identified by leaf features which separate it from similar C. vitellinus. Flowers are deep yellow with a distinct “waist’ but in the sun opens widely. The inside pure yellow, the outside very variable - from grey suffusion to dark purple stripes, each plant is different. S Turkey. Needs a dry summer rest.

A close relative of C. reticulatus. Its species status recently was confirmed by DNA researches in Gatersleben Institute (Germany). Both are easy separable as C. hittiticus has black anthers. Flowers are lighter or darker lilac with more or less prominent dark stripes on the back of outer segments. Needs hot and dry summer and quite often blooming starts already in winter. This season already at very end of November, so may be must be reclassified as autumn blooming species?

Although Crocus ionopharynx was described as having black anthers it is not always the case. Sample HKEP-0304 (sent to me by Erich) has such a light grey tinge on the connectives that it is perceivable only after careful checking. Very important for identification is the purple colour deep in the throat, sometimes visible only in dissected flowers. The authors characterise the flowers as quite uniform in colour, any distinct striping and feathering on the outside observable only in a few specimens. In its typical (and best) forms with very dark outer basal blotches Crocus ionopharynx is very ornamental and with me it is a good grower in the greenhouse. It well sets seed and increases by splitting of the corms. According to I. Sözen, it does not like chalky soils and is tolerant of summer rains, but I keep it in greenhousre all the year round and grow in my standart mix..

Not so long ago under name isauricus were grown a lot of different species. Only quite recently Kerndorff and Pasche after careful comparing of herbariums, literature data found that true isauricus comes from some mountains around Taskent in S Turkey. I have two something different stocks from closely situated populations which well respond to data given by HKEP. The flowers of both samples have the cup-shape considered typical of the true plant. Parallely this problem was researched by Osman Erol, who regarded as typical "isauricus" plant published by Kerndorff and Pasche as C. concinnus, but it has much more slender flower segments, so I follow here HKEP's decision.

Crocus kangalensis was published by Kerndorff & Pasche only few years ago, unfortunately the data about locality from where it was described is given very approximately. Bity, but most of new species published by both German researchers are characterized by observations of single population, so they not always characterizes all spectrum of variability. Plants offered here are collected near Kangal and are slightly different in some features from plants described by HKEP. The main difference is in colour of flower tube which in my stock is darker striped, but according HKEP must be light. Therefore, although I’m sure that mine stock belongs to the same species, I’m attaching “aff.” - what means - close to…

The several years in cultivation have shown that C. katrancensis is easy in pots, if kept in the greenhouse the entire time, and it very well increases both from seed and by corm splitting. In flower colour it is very variable, but the darker coloured stripes or feathering are always located solely in the middle of the flower segments. I have not tried the species outside. In its habitat the summers are hot and dry.

C. leichtlinii is still rarely cultivated and can be found only in a few collections. In the wild it grows in a harsh environment with very cold winters and hot and dry summers, thus it is suitable only for pots under cover. But it very well sets seed and increases satisfactorily by corm splitting, so it is worthy of wider cultivation.

Another species that is practically identical with the crocus published by Kerndorff & Pasche as Crocus malatyensis. My stock was collected not very far away from type locality (closer to Malatya) and morphologically is very similar, only the anthers in my plants are occasionally with black connectives. Even genetically both stocks are very similar - is it sufficient to regard them as different? I do not know. At least flowers of both generally are inseparable and black colour in anthers occasionally appear in many Turkish species of this region.

This species by flowers something resembles more widely known C. reticulatus. In pots it fares very well and even the forms collected in the neighbourhood of C. hittiticus never bloom in December or January, as is quite often the case with the latter.

Crocus mouradii is correct name for plant earlier known as subsp. dissectus of C. flavus. So far I have tried it only in pots and most likely it needs a deeper planting than the majority of species, because in nature its corms lie very deep in the soil.

Crocus nubigena from the moment of its discovery and first description was a somewhat enigmatic plant. Although it was described from plants reported as collected at Mt. Gargarus, I didn’t find any herbaria collected wild. Regardless of quite poor available data, it was possible to conclude that plants growing wild near Bergamo and on Lesvos Island most precisely respond to original publication, and here are offered just stock originally collected on Lesvos Island with flowers lighter or darker blue and with very prominent black anthers with long basal lobes.

Crocus orphei is superficially quite similar to C. reticulatus and other closely related species with blue flowers. Regardless of its very isolated location, until very recently it was regarded as C. reticulatus but in 2014 it was described as a new species separable from its allies by the throat colour, the width of the corm fibres, and other morphological features. It is easy to grow in the open garden and well sets seed without additional pollination. Pot grown plants during the summer better to bring outside to not subject the corms to extreme heat.

Up to last Bulgarian spring blooming bluish crocus with annulate tunics was named as "C. adamii" what of course was not true, because Crocus adamii is growing only in Caucasus mountains. Quite recently this was confirmed when group of botanists described annulate crocus from adjacent Serbia as C. randjeloviciorum. Both populations - Serbian and Bulgarian are very close - actually on both sides of border and when I compared them - turned that they are of same species. I'm offering plants collected on Bulgarian side of border.

Crocus rujanensis in outer appearance looks something similar to C. dalmaticus and C. sublimis and differs from the two in a combination of characters rather than in one distinct feature. All my samples of it were collected at locus classicus on Rujan Planina, so they undoubtedly are correctly named. In my garden Crocus rujanensis is less vigorous than its closest relatives, most likely due to the lower altitudes where it occurs in wild; it seems that our winters are somewhat too harsh for it, but in a milder climate it is an excellent garden plant – well sets seed and is a good increaser by corm splitting.

In flowers C. sieheanus is fairly similar to C. ancyrensis and C. chrysanthus although its orange style well exceeding the anthers give it a rather distinctive appearance. Of course, inspection of corm tunics allows to make a correct identification immediately. Crocus sieheanus is not difficult in cultivation but it needs a long, dry and hot summer rest, so its pots stay in the greenhouse all year round. In spring it requires abundant watering but the substrate must be well draining.

Jim Archibald collected this crocus together with Norman Stevens, but regarded it as special form of C. crewei. When he shared with me his crocuses, I immediately found that this sample has several features well separating it from typical C. crewei, although in wild they are not located very far one from another. I decided to name this one after my very long-time friend and travel partner Norman Stevens. It is quite variable by colour and on pictures are shown most differently looking plants from side and with open flowers.

Crocus suaveolens replaces C. imperati southwards along the W coast of Italy and usually has somewhat smaller and paler-coloured flowers. There are small differences in the measurements regarding filaments and anthers but the main feature that separates the two species is the absence of the bracteole in C. suaveolens. Its nice and strong scent, highlighted in the name, makes up for the lack of brightness and the smaller size comparing with C. imperatii. Crocus suaveolens is easy in the garden, though it can suffer in harsh winters.

The name of Crocus tauri is well known to crocus growers for many years already. A crocus from the “biflorus” group under this name is being offered by several nurseries. It seems that it is a sterile cultivated clone. From where just comes true C. tauri was unknown and HKEP used one of their acquisitions from Malatya province for designation of new epitype for this species. Unfortunately there are some discrepancies between published locality and notes on different herbarium sheets, labelled by HKEP as C. tauri. Both their localities are in around 30 km distance, my stock was collected just in middle between them and differs from description of C. tauri generally by connective of anthers, which in my plants occasionally are with thin black edges. In any case this is true species, having nothing common with usual commercial stocks. I don't know any other nursery offering true plant.

Previously known as Crocus herbertii. An excellent form from Mt. Uludag in NW Turkey with bright orange flowers and a stoloniferous habit. If planted and left undisturbed for a few years then every spring it will flower in abundance and slowly expand occupying the entire spot but will not become a weed, looking like yellow flames bursting from the bare earth. It makes a stunning show growing with me under old apple tree in a humus-rich soil, flowering every year without attention. Naturally very small corms, but they are flowering.

Broad-petalled, vivid yellow flowers each of which has a distinct orange zone in the throat around yellow anthers and a divided orange style. The flowers are marked lightly with bronze feathering outside. Crocus vitellinus is very similar to C. graveolens but is reported as very sweetly scented. The shape of the flowers can easily distinguish both species: C. vitellinus flowers are slender, funnel-shaped with no distinct waist and the segments are wider and usually rounded at the tips, unlike the narrow and pointed segments in C. graveolens. C. vitellinus usually has less numerous leaves which are wider. Easy and vigorous in the Western Europe gardens, but here growable only in pots.

C. zetterlundii is very easy in cultivation and readily sets seed. Although I have not tried it in the open garden, judging by the conditions in its homeland, it might be a good grower, just like its distant neighbour C. abantensis, which even prefers and grows better in the garden than in greenhouse pots. It increases well by splitting but if you want to multiply C. zetterlundii from seed, isolation and controlled hand-pollination is essential, as it can hybridise with other species from the C. biflorus aggregate.

The genus Fessia was separated from Scilla by Spetha, who split scillas into many new/old genera. Not all of those "new" genera was accepted, but Fessia is one of those which was acknowledged by most of botanists and in Kew. The species of Fessia are distributed wild from Iran (inclusive Aserbaijan Talish) up to Pakistan and into former soviet Central Asian states - Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

It is perhaps the best of all of the tuberous geraniums, with knob-like tubers. It is the earliest to flower and bears its blooms with great abundance. This free-flowering nature and its compact habit mean that the whole plant is simply covered in gorgeous pink-purple blooms with darker veining and lining. Likes an open sunny spot with a dry summer or annual lifting to ensure dry summer rest.

Reticulate irises - A - (sometimes regarded as different genus Iridodyctium) in most cases are not very difficult in garden but you must provide excellent drainage as they don't like (with few exceptions) moisture after end of blooming and in summer. Excellently growth in pots and many are used for forcing, too. Another group of bulbous irises known under common name Juno-irises (regarded as separate genus Juno by some botanists) has thick additional roots at base of bulb. You must be careful during repotting (replanting in garden) and bulb cleaning for not to break them off. It will seriously weaken plant in next season or it can even die, although sometimes those roots can be used for propogation, too. Many are more tolerant to garden conditions, although some are very difficult even in pots. All (with very few exceptions) prefair dry conditions during summer. Review about species of reticulata irises you can find in online magazine of Scottish Rock Garden Club - International Rock Gardener - following link http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2019Apr261556270768IRG_112_April_2019.pdf

This beautiful and well growing species up to recently was offered as light (even as white) form of I. zagrica, which growth in Iran but very far to south from Iris avromanica. It was named after Kuh-e Shāhu (Hawraman) Ridge, where it was observed. Common with I. zagrica is breaking of flower from stalk at end of blooming leaving long "beak" on top of seedpod. Flowers are very light bluish shaded, good grower and increaser but stock still is very limited.

Now it is separated from Muscari in own genus Muscarimia.

Representative of Muscarimia muscarimi (former Muscari muscarimi) is the most fragrant of the grape hyacinths, with both its genus & species name referring to the musk. This has navy-blue buds which open to yield white flowers. The flowers are highlighted with a bronze crown at the mouth and bear a delicious, almost overpowering, sweet musky fragrance, evident a long way away. I grow it under cover and during blooming time all greenhouse is filled with sweet scent. Likes a fertile soil with good drainage and plenty of sun to flower well. Makes bulbs with perennial roots and seldom makes offsets. My stock is raised up from seeds and its greatest advantage compared to plants usually available from Dutch companies is that it is virus-free. It is hardy outside here, but then seldom flowers as it needs good summer baking. Now it is separated from Muscari into own genus Muscarimia.

This unique ornithogalum was for the first time offered only few years ago for significantly higher price, but everyone customer got instead of one ordered plant two plants. This species is completely selfsterile, so due very good bulb crop I doubled number of bulbs for each order to ensure further propagation by seeds. So this year I again reduced price. It still is not published and so name could be changed later, but it is very unique between other ornithogalums and according its discoverer Arnis Seisums most likely belongs even to new series.

About discovering of this unusual autumn blooming scilla you can read amazingt story in my book BURRIED TREASURES. Actually found by Arnis Seisums, all bulbs were forwarded to Janis as supoposed to be ordinar P. autumnalis. Only in cultivation was found that it differs from traditional species by pink flowers and forming of leaves only in spring whilst other species are going in winter with green leaves and therefor is lass hardy than new Prospero (Scilla) seisumsiana.

One of the most attractive Muscari s. l. which catches the attention of every visitor of our garden for its very bright, large sky blue flowers. There is no other species with so bright colour and of such shade among Muscari s. l. N-E Turkey, alpine meadows on marshy or boggy ground. Coll. at 2000 m, between Bayburt and Erzurum (BATM-191). Not difficult in garden. According new approach this species belongs to genus Pseudomuscari and really it looks more as Pseudomuscari than Bellevalia.

A recently described species from Hakkari Province in the very south east of Turkey and adjacent Iran, where it grows at the edge of snow at up to 2000 m. Though discovered in 1974 by Hasan Peşmen it was not named until 2007. It is unique in its greenish flowers, which open when the leaves are well developed and forms very nice looking spikes packed with flowers of very unusual colour. The six anther filaments fuse at their base to form a vestigial cup. These bulbs are vegetatively propagated from the type accession, which was collected by Martyn Rix.

This nice Scilla has only one (occasionally two) bright violet-blue flowers per scape, but the larger number of scapes which can be up to 10 from a well-established bulb well compensates for the smaller number of flowers on each scape, making it very floriferous..

This is some 15-20 cm tall species with two to four leaves at ground level and a densely packed spike of horizontal, only slightly pendant starry flowers in bright mid blue. Each bloom is some 1 cm across and is held on a short pedicel just clear of the stem. A native of light woodlands, this is happy in similar conditions of light shade and a humus rich soil and it is reputed to naturalise in time. Easily grown but not a common plant and very rarely offered.
