Description

Colchicum- Agrippinum

Colchicum x agrippinum

Synonyms: Colchicum autumnale

NOT TO TAS, WA

  • Rose-purple flowers with a chequered pattern
  • Autumn flowering
  • Multiple flowers per corm

A rare herbaceaous perennial with funnel shaped flowers about 10cm tall in autumn. The flowers are rose-purple with a distinctive chequered pattern and pointed petals. Clumps of 30cm tall, wavy leaves emerge in late winter and early spring, dying down in summer. Suited to planting in containers, gravel gardens and at the edges of borders.

Colchicum, often called 'Autumn Crocus', have funnel-shaped flowers that resemble true crocus. Flowers bloom in autumn, die down over winter, then the leaves emerge in spring before dying down over summer. Each corm will produce multiple flowers. Corms are best left to naturalise in the ground. Also known as 'Naked Ladies' and 'Meadow Saffron'.

Note: all parts of the corm, flowers and plants are toxic to cats, dogs and humans; handle with care.
