Crocus ‘Jeanne d’Arc’ produces relatively large blooms above slender leaves with a pronounced central stripe. The flowers are pure white with delicate purple veins and bold orange stamens, creating a wonderful pop in late winter / early spring.
These ones were growing with other bulbs in a large terracotta pot at RHS Garden Harlow Carr. The gardeners have applied a layer of sharp grit as a mulch to help conserve water and make it less likely that splashes of mud will spoil the flowers before their time.

We have that one, no sign of it in our garden yet. I shall have to make do with looking at your picture.
They’re biding their time.
These are just beautiful, Susan.
I miss crocuses. They just do not grow in this part of Texas. Maybe farther north.
I’m sorry – hope these gave you more happy feelings on balance than pangs!
Spring! I like the white crocuses.
I like the purple and white striped ones best, but these are good garden plants.
My mother grew crocus in every Texas garden she had. I think of her every time I see one. Purple was my favorite.
It’s bitter sweet when flowers remind you of loved ones. I’m glad to hear that Texas is not a crocus-free zone!
