Crocuses Taurus Mountains  



A must for Crocus enthusiasts - there are no less than 28 species on the agenda for this tour. 

You'll find yourself in expert hands: your tour leaders have helped make many new discoveries in Western Turkey. Yasemin even has one named after her; Crocus yaseminiae. 



Crocuses Taurus Mountains  



  • Gembos Yayla:  On the high pastures, you'll find yellow Crocus gembosii and purple-striped blue Crocus mavii hybridise to produce a kaleidoscope of colour.


  • Crocus calanthus:  Spy this large, very rare Crocus in the cedar of Lebanon forests. 


  • New discoveries:  Near Antalya, you'll see Crocus aff. tauri and a Crocus discovered so recently, it's still yet to be named.
