I have never grown Colchicums before and I am often surprised by them in customers gardens. They are curious late season flowers which just appear out of nowhere.

This one is a rare white one which I will try in the front of my main bed and see how it gets on.

Its also called Meadow Saffron or Autumn Crocus, although it isn’t a Crocus!

One plant flowered in November!
