AUTUMN BLOOMING CROCUS OUR PRICE 3/$10 (SUGGESTED RETAIL 1 for $7.95)
Large lilac pink/purple flowers, 6-8" wide. Fall blooming Crocus and Colchicum are wonderful additions to the garden. Their blooms form lovely chalice-shaped cups. Leaves turn golden yellow as they mature, blending with fall foliage.
Sometimes called the Autumn Crocus, the Colchium is a one-of-a-kind wonder in the flower kingdom.These beautiful lily cousins are not true crocuses.
The habit of the Colchium is an interesting one. SPRING:broad leaves appear but die back long before bloom. FALL: brings on the COLORFUL LIGHT PINK/PURPLE BLOOMS. They are of Crocus-like form upon long tube-like stems. Colchiums never fail to surprise the gardener with their delicate appearance amid the rougher weather of fall. They require little attention and growing them is an especially fun.
Bloom Time: Sept/October
remember they bloom in the fall so BEST PLANTED IN SPRING/EARLY SUMMER
