Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A bright display of dazzling white, fully double flowers burst from the soil in September. The flowers of Colchicum autumnale alboplenum appear alone, with the foliage emerging in the following spring. This showy bulb is ideal for naturalising and will happily flourish in the dappled shade of trees or planted throughout rockeries and unmown grassy areas. Once established it requires virtually no maintenance but will reappear year after year in an increasingly spectacular display. Height: 15cm (6”). Spread: 10cm (4”).
