The Tenor of Colchicums

The star of the fall garden this year has been Colchicum tenorii (recently corrected to Colchicum cilicicum), which has been flowering for weeks. Our clump of this Italian native bulb, began as a single bulb in 2000. Once the flowers finish next week, the large, green leaves will emerge and continue to grow through the winter, before finally going dormant in mid spring. This is growing in our full sun rock garden in a soil mix amended with Permatill. (Hardiness is Zone 4-8).
