Large, deep bluish-purple, goblet-shaped flowers, early in the spring, with darker tips to the petals. This the Italian mountain representative of the Crocus vernus complex and very rare in cultivation. Originally from the collection of that maestro of Australian gardening, Otto Fauser, and kindly passed on to us by David Glenn of Lambley Nursery. No better provenance than that! Needs moist garden soil, and little attention.
