A nice form of Colchicum hungaricum from SBL seed (I think that is 'Salmon, Bird and Lovell')

Don't be fooled by the closeup pic - these flowers are smaller than a biflorus crocus!

what a colour combination!! Puts my white form and Velebit to shame. Is there a waiing list?

Here's one from me before I go to bed. Just watched the Truth programme on Sky1 and Grand Designs

Anyway, I forgot I had bought this until I spotted it today after work

Colchium luteum x kessellringii.- after it for so long after Ian showed it in a bulb log. I now have both parents so need to do some pollinating
