Colchicum Autumnale

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Bearing a late-season splash of colour with their purplish-pink goblets – Colchicum autumnale are valuable for naturalising, blooming year after year in the garden.

Commonly known as autumn crocus, or naked ladies, free-flowering Colchicum bloom during September and October and are adored by pollinators.

Large, flat leaves are retained by the plants until mid-summer when they are replaced by beautiful, large and colourful flowers which stand proud and tall in the garden.

Excellent for planting beneath trees amongst grass, and in a sunny or semi-shaded border.  Colchicum autumnale will appear as a swathe of jewels, glinting on bright autumn mornings and evenings.
