Colchicum Giant

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



The large blooms of Colchicum ‘Giant’ are breathtakingly beautiful when they blaze in the border during September and October.

Each bulb will produce between 5-10 spectacular goblet-shaped, soft purple flowers, topping bare stems.

Glossy, tapering leaves appear early on in spring, before fading in summer to reveal clusters of ethereal lilac flowers with white centres.

Colchicum ‘Giant’ will naturalise easily in well-drained soil in sun or part shade.

Commonly known as meadow saffron, free-flowering autumn Colchicum are invaluable for bringing a pop colour to borders or grassy areas and are loved by pollinators, who seek out the golden-orange stamens within.
