I can't understand why any purple ones disappear from my borders yet the yellow increase and flower well.

I really like the crocus. These flowers do not exist here but I can get the seeds through AliExpress. But I doubt if the flowers will resist our climate.

Aleyna - crocus are small bulbs that have evolved to flower in early spring when there is moisture from rain or snow melt. After setting seed, they die back and spend the hot, dry summers as an underground corm. Some come from mountain areas so are able to withstand snowy winters.
What sort of weather conditions do you have?
