Autumn "Crocus" and the closely related genus Merendera will adopt to virtual any soil condition, if being kept not too wet in winter. Easy to cultivate and some of the last flowers in year. Pink shades are prominent, only the spring flowering C. lutea is truly yellow.
Sow flat autumn to late spring in any well drained, rocky or sandy soil. Keep pots in a sheltered and sunny spot in winter. Transplant young bulbs best in late summer of their third year. Colchicum will need some time from seeds, but once established they will produce more and more flower each year.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6 unless otherwise specified.
20 seeds per package.
