||October (flowerbulb planting time)
Colchicum byzantinum has larger flowers than Colchicum autumnale. Colchicum byzantinum is very suitable for indoor flower arrangements as it flowers in the driest of situations. However, because the larger flowers of Colchicum byzantinum are less resilient to rain and snap more easily, we advise Colchicum autumnale for in the garden.
Please note that Colchicums have foliage in the spring: plant them therefore in a spot that doesn't get mown at this time of the year. After receiving the Colchicum bulbs, plant them as quickly as possible. The bulbs can be stored in the fridge for a short while (frost free!).
