While I get most of my bulbs from far away specialist nurseries these days, the local stores are still worth visiting. My wife found this one locally (St John's, Newfoundland) a couple of years ago, planted it in a border and it has done very well. Later this year we shall have to lift and divide it. I find that white forms are either insipid or dazzling and this is definitely in the latter category. In addition to its colour the rounded petals which, like those of most species crocus, open fully in the sun, are exceptional.

Ard Schenk was a Dutch speed skater.
