Spring  In England, After the Worst Winter Ever Recorded!Spring In England, After the Worst Winter Ever Recorded!
By NEILMUIR1 on March 8, 2011

After untold snow and ice, winter finally left and we had nearly two weeks of mild weather. Then the cold winds started and rain with it for what seems an age now. Unable to go out and do anything. I vowed that the first dry day we have, I would go out and get some pictures. That day was today and it was surprising to say the least. Snowdrops, still out with Magnolia, are just about to go into full flower. What a strange spring!

This all yellow cultivar was bred by the Englishman Percival Williams in 1927 and has been the recipient of the RHS Award of Merit three times and the First Class Certificate twice. Crocus has been well utilized in the world of daffodil breeders in both seed parent role (10 times) and pollen parent role (47 times). From these efforts have arisen 52 named cultivars and 5 noted seedlings. This happened from 1938 to 1979 from various locations that were once part of the British Empire (Australia, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, England) and Ireland.
That's a pretty good track record.
