Please be accurate, they are not Crocus. Naked ladies is one colloquial name. Autumn crocus are different things.

Cobnuts are in season. How to use them?

All we do is lightly roast them and store in an airtight jar. I eat an ounce of them every day to help with my cholesterol control.

Not C, purpurescens either. Leaves are wrong. That is a fairly standard C. persicum. Kept in the right conditions it will flower for months. Not hardy though so once temps drop below 5c it is going to struggle.

Could be Lonicera maackii. In which case, no the berries are not eidble to humans.
