Lovely fresh colour is this an autumn crocus please.

3d - although superficially similar, crocuses and sternbergias are not related. I have seen them growing in the wild in Greece - here they require a position in full sun and sharp drainage (mine are in raised beds). They are also not hardy enough for colder parts of the country.
