Colchicum

Higlight colchicum 575×575

Colchicum is very similar to a crocus. But Colchicum flowers in the fall and is leafless. The foliage does appear in the spring, but dies before the plant comes into bloom. Another Dutch name is Autumn crocus. After flowering Colchicum can be planted in the garden in partial shade. Here the bulb will expand and multiply and is therefore very suitable for naturalizing.
