Art,

I bought that bulb from Nijssen (http://www.pcnijssen.nl/shop/) this year.

Luc,

Thanks,
It's growing outside, against a south facing wall planted in pure sand which gets covered during summer, I'm not sure if it will survive but I'll see.

Thanks Fred,

early indeed, we have had temperatures of 10 to 15C for the last couple of weeks with a lot of rain where normally it should be freezing now. Nature is a bit out of whack it would seem.

Paul
it might be Merendera trigyna, its new name would be Colchicum trigynum probably.

If it isn't a Merendera (like M. trigyna or M. raddeana) it should be Colchicum szovitschii. Any clear pics of the flower tube?

Here is C. lusitanicum, photographed in Morocco.

Hello Kris,

Last autumn (late October - early November). There is quite a different set of autumn bulbs there than in Greece and Turkey.
