Autumn Crocus (Crocus speciosus (large purple crocus))

Bought as Crocus speciosus, I think, years ago. (It is Not the Saffron Crocus, the stamens of which are used in cooking)

I bought some Saffron Crocus for the stamens for culinary purposes, but they are not doing at all well. They are the only Crocus in my semi bed, to keep them seperate.
