The stock of labelled Colchicum cilicium purpureum have been mislabelled for many years ..... but never offered for sale. The next time Mike "goes round the back" to take photos i must watch him more carefully.

Having read up Colchicum cilicicum in the Flora of Turkey I discovered that it can be slightly tessellated and Persson in the key in her revision of the species (sent to me by Jim Kees in the US) says they are distinctly tessellated,something I have never seen and so apologies for my previous post.

Strong winds and a lot of rain the last days. I guess autumn is here now. The first colchicum to flower in my garden is C. autumnale 'Nancy Lindsay'.

The strong winds are threatening to flatten all the colchicums down.

C byzantinum "Innocence" used to be called just album.  It has tiny pink tips to the petals.  I don't know where the pink one at he left of the clump came from or if it is a hybrid.

Plant Finder says byzantinum Album and Innocence are the same but I always thought Innocence was a selection made by John Foster or maybe it was him who found the white form :-\

I presume that "Innocence" is the only white clone of C byzantinum in cultivation.  And if so, I presume it is either sterile or breeds true, with that little pink tip to the petals.  I've never seen seed or seedlings so I'm not sure.

One of yours shows what mine do and it would be lovely if it could be fixed. There is a pink line from the tip down through the petal

Dom, next point of equal interest.
Diane, here is white and pink also, but only in one flower and not in different bulbs.

My favourite Colchicum is looking great today. I took lots of photographs before the hover flies poop all over them. The first photo is from Friday and the rest show the flowers opening today. speciosum Album is so pristine and white with the lovely green stem
