Description


A cluster of double and single blooms in subtle hues for a ground-covering, naturalising carpet in autumn each year. Often referred to by their common name, Naked Ladies, because the flowers are borne without foliage. What's more, Curvaceous Colchicum Collection encompasses two varieties which hold the Award of Garden Merit from the RHS for their beauty and reliability in the garden. Although often called autumn crocus, colchicums are not related to true crocuses for the horticulturalists among us. Whilst there are winter and spring-flowering species of colchicum, the most common ones, like these, bloom in September and October. Plant these special bulbs under shrubs and trees or at border edges for a dainty and delicate visual treat and prepare to be surprised as flowers tend to appear unexpectedly, as they are not preceded by leaves. Foliage follows after the flowers and remains until summer. Plant these hardy (H4 and H5) bulbous perennials in a site with a moist, free-draining soil which enjoys full sun or part shade.
