Colchicum Autumnale Alboplenum

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Known as meadow saffron, Colchicum autumnale ‘Alboplenum’ are rare and unusual, double-flowered, white autumn Crocus.

The spectacular flowers bloom several to each bulb and are wonderful for naturalising in a sunny or semi-shaded position, in well-drained soil.

Large, flat leaves appear in spring, before fading in late summer to reveal clusters of ruffled, crisp white flowers topping bare stems. 

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

A beautiful, heirloom crocus which is perfect for adding freshness and texture late on in the season.
