Product Information

 COLCHICUM

pannonicum

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.

Extremely easy to grow, they 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.

Said to origin in Hungary Colchicum pannonicum forms dense cluster of slender flowers in the most wonderful shade of mauve with a small white stripe.

Colchicum 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.

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.

Colchicum pannonicum will naturalise easily and the bulbs multiply quickly.

Superb in a warm well drained spot or around the base of trees, this stunning beautiful bulb produces many, many mauve goblet-shaped flowers in autumn.
