Product Information

 COLCHICUM

Lilac Wonder

Colchicum, a member of the lily family is often called autumn-flowering crocus but they are also known as Naked Ladies because in most species the flowers appear long before the foliage develops.

Sometimes referred to as Meadow Saffron the bulbs have been known to produce as many as 30 of the most magnificent flowers every year.

Colchicum Lilac Wonder is one of the more free flowering varieties.

The large amethyst or violet flowers have contrasting white lines down the centre of each petal.

The stunning blooms are produced in September.

They are very easy to grow and will even produce beautiful flowers without needing any soil or water, simply place the bulb on a window sill and leave to bloom, after flowering plant it in the garden.

The large flowers are followed in spring by equally large tulip like leaves.

They have become increasingly popular because they will naturalise if left undisturbed and it is now hard to imagine autumn without the magical appearance of Colchicums.

Plant 8-10 cm deep in light shade preferably in rich well drained soil.

Colchicums sometimes sulk and refuse to grow the first year after planting but don't give up on them just because you don't see flowers immediately or foliage the first spring.
