This might not really be a crocus, but that’s what they are usually called. The scientific name is Colchicum. These bulbs appear in early fall, with buds first and no leaves showing, and the splash of color is so welcome in the garden when not much else is blooming. These are from my garden, just a couple of weeks ago.
