As pollen dauber you just can’t stop with daffodils.  Last year some crocus sent up ghostly white growth that I let mature and collected a hand full of pink seeds.  I forgot to plant until this spring.  I planted and still no signs of life.  This spring I crossed a few different crocus colors and these white ghostly heads popped  up.   Two things

Has any one have experience in crossing and producing crocus seedlings/bulbs?

The crocus seed pod appears to have grow underground and then sends up a white shoot with a pod full of seeds.  This growing habit  is so much different than daffodils.  Can anyone tell me about the lifecycle of a crocus?
