These are autumn flowering Gee. They should have been planted much earlier so I was delighted that they popped up so quickly. I was a bit annoyed to find that the full price bulbs I had bought were actually past their plant and flower by dates. I planted 15 bulbs here and nine have produced flowers. I should have taken them back but it would have cost more as I would probably have replaced them with something twice the price. My pink autumn flowering crocus have been and gone in September. The leaves don't appear until the spring. I like the dark stripes on the petals Sfmr. They are a nice contrast with the dark purple and red of the Tom Thumb fuchsia beside them.
