Description


Colchicum Waterlily is a RHS award winning crocus that resembles a water lily. Also known as 'Meadow Saffron' this colchicum offers showy pink double blooms of over 20 petals. Each stem can produce 1-6 flowers and foliage appears later than the blooms. Colchis in Asia Minor from where the bulbs were distributed gives the flower its name. This autumn crocus flowers in September-October. Colchicum Waterlily prefers well-drained soil with moisture and a sheltered spot in sun or partial sun. Once the bulb is dormant it can cope with drier condition. These beautiful pink flowers offer drifts of colour when bulbs are planted together. If left to die down they offer flowers every year. These crocus bulbs would make a stunning addition to the front of a border. They can also be used to add interest to walkways, rockeries or containers. Colchium can be used as groundcover to enhance a border.
