On plant Crocus baytopiorum



You wont be able to buy crocus bulbs at this time of year they will go on sale in autumn. It is possible, but unlikely that a local garden centre will stock - your best best is to buy from one of the big bulb houses on the web

You are unlikely to find C. baytropiorum on the shelves of a garden center, you would be better to buy by mail order. Try:
These are all likely to offer this auumn flower beauty at a reasonable price.

Sorry, baytopiorum is early spring flowering, of course!

The other place is Kew, they sometimes have the rarer bulbs on sale.

I must admit that when I first answered this question I was thinking of the autumn flowering Crocus banaticus.
C. baytopiorum is a species that I don't have in my own collection so the question inspired me to find some for myself. And, so far, I have FAILED. Even the small, specialist bulb growres that I know don't have it at the moment. So, if you find this bulb, Blighted, please let me know.

I did grow it from seed from a seed exchange quite a few years back. It flowered too, once! Then it was eaten by a mouse.
