Fall Crocus

My fall crocus is almost finished blooming.  This plant is so pretty.  Fall crocuses have to be planted in the fall.  Then they send up some very large green leaves in the spring.  The leaves die back and the plant goes dormant by the time July rolls around.  In the fall it sends up pretty pink, white or purple flowers when you least expect them.  I planted this one a few years ago.  It was a very large bulb.  I thought I had saved the package it came in so that I would be able to identify it.  But the package is gone and I have no idea which variety this one is.
