Autumn Crocus Overview
Colchicum x aggripinum produces bright pink, slightly mottled flowers with pointed petal tips, which resemble those of the genus Crocus, in autumn. They measure around 5cm long. Strap-shaped, wavy leaves up to 15cm in length, follow flowering. Also known by the names Autumn Crocus, Naked Lady and Byzantine Meadow Saffron, they are suitable for many garden situations including mixed borders, containers, gravel and rock gardens. Colchicum × aggripinum prefer fertile, well-drained soil (but not too dry in the growing season) and need a sunny spot. Never allow them to become waterlogged.
