Description


Colchicum tenorei is also known as 'Naked Ladies' for its beautiful pink colour. The bulbs were introduced from Southern Italy in about 1858. This crocus offers gorgeous shades of light to deep purple cupped blooms atop pale green stems and later appearing foliage. Perfect for providing a burst of colour in containers or along the front of a border. The blooms would also enhance a rockery. Plant in late summer - early autumn for bright autumm/winter blooms. The foliage appears a little later and then remains until spring when the bulb dies back ready for autumn blooming. Colchicum tenorei prefers moist well-drained soil when growing and flowering but needs drier conditions when dormant. This crocus enjoys full sun or partial shade and prefers to be sheltered from wind. It is a drought tolerant bulb. Plant a number of bulbs together to form a drift of colour. This crocus naturalises easily.
