Description

Colchicum cilicicum is one of finest and most floriferous species of the genus, known collectively as Autumn Crocus, with large upright rose-lilac six-petaled flowers that have a distinctive white mid-stripe, long filaments and yellow anthers. The flowers arise from the large underground corm in September (sometimes late August) and continue flowering for many weeks through October. After the autumn flowering, the foliage appears in Spring before dying down in the summer when the plants go into dormancy.
