A new introduction of a very scarce plant. This Crocus is still not common in cultivation and in the wild it seems to be similarly limited. It is found only in Adana Province, Southern Turkey, where it grows in open woodland or scrub.
It flowers in March producing several flowers from each corm in cultivation, though only 1-2 per corm in the wild. The petals are pale violet with a white base stained with a little yellow six-pointed star. The outer petals can be silvery or buff with violet lining at the base. There are no difficulties growing this, only in getting hold of it!
