Colchicum Lilac Bedder

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Beautiful, amethyst petals with white throats bloom in clusters during autumn on Colchicum ‘Lilac Bedder’.

Commonly known as meadow saffron, Colchicum are valuable, ethereal flowers for introducing colour later on in the season and are popular with bees and garden pollinators, opening wide under the warmth of the autumn sun.

‘Lilac Bedder’ is very vigorous variety and is therefore excellent for naturalising to form large clumps amongst grass or at the edge of garden borders.  Well-drained soil and full sun or part shade is best for the bulbs to thrive.

Foliage appears in spring and dies back in summer, before the flowers appear during October atop slender, bare stems.
