Another striking form of Crocus sieberi, here with a three-toned color effect.  I've seen
the name listed various ways, but unless convinced otherwise, I'll go ahead and use
Crocus sieberi ssp. sublimis 'Tricolor'.  From overhead, this cultivar clearly shows off
it's tricolor appeal. 
Rather amusing is how the multiple flowers appear just above the
soil without any foliage in evidence.
