Hardiness Zone 3B

This crocus grows among Black Rundle stepping stones by the pond in a partly shady garden with an eastern exposure in Red Deer, Alberta.   
This year it waited until the very last day of April to bloom.  
The crocus is a member of the iris family that grows from corms.  
Unable to find more information on the white crocus I leave my post simply with the thought that this small and beautiful flower is a welcome surprise that brings hope to the garden that has been sleeping through a prairie winter.
