This is the world-famous double pink fall flowering colchicum. Each bulb produces 5 to 10 brightly-colored flowers that pop gorgeously among the crowds of autumn leaves. Long-lasting cut blooms from these fall flowering crocus bulbs are pure elegance in a shallow vase. (Colchicum autumnale)
Just when the summer garden begins to take on a bedraggled appearance, colchicum’s nearly perfect cup-shape flowers unfurl. These water lily bulbs draw instant interest, making the rest of the lackluster summer garden fade into the landscape. Plant colchicum for the joy of seeing fresh flowers at the end of a long, hot summer. Or, plant it to remind yourself where the spring-blooming bulbs are planted; they’ll have died back before colchicum’s flowers appear in the fall. Its foliage, on the other hand, emerges in early spring, yellows, and fades back by July.
