COLCHICUM - Meadow saffron

Colchicums (Meadow saffron) flowers in late summer and early autumn. The flowers of Colchicums are very similar to those of the Bieberstein’s crocus (autumn-flowering crocus); it is the number of stamens that set them apart. Colchiums grow best in a sunny spot. Please note that Colchiums have foliage in spring so plant them in a spot that isn’t mown at this time of the year.
