    Please be accurate, they are not Crocus. Naked ladies is one colloquial name. Autumn crocus are different things.

    I actually knew the answer to this one as I have a crop of them out in my garden. Didn't get the Australian reference until 4 posts in though. Doh! It's been a long day!

    i never know the answer to any of the plant ID posts so just had to comment on this one !
