These flowers were blooming in the Bronx yesterday. Bet they are closed up with the cold temperatures we are having this morning. These were a very nice purple and had a large flower.
There are about 25 to 30 of Crocus that are cultivated although the Spring Crocus (Crocus vernus) and the Dutch Crocus (Crocus flavus) are the ones you see the most. They are many cultivars and hybrids. Crocus are members of the Iris family, Iridaceae.
