Description:    A lilac Crocus.  The European settlers who named these little flowers crocuses; because they
are the first to bloom Ø like the crocuses of home. Prior to European settlement Blackfoot Indians called them
"napi" which translates to "old man," and is thought to be a reference to the grey feathery seeds which arise
above the plants in June.

The familiar prairie crocus (Anemone patens) is a member of the buttercup family and should not be
confused with the white, yellow and mauve crocuses we plant with our fall bulbs. These horticultural crocuses
are also the source of saffron, one of the world's most expensive spices.
Because they are usually found only on sites where the original sod has never been broken, prairie crocuses
are becoming more and more rare with each passing year.
