Fall Blooming Crocus

Not to be confused with Colchicum, pictured here are flowering bulbs of C. Speciosus the true Fall Blooming Crocus. These amazing little bulbs are seldom seen and quite unusual in comparison to their spring blooming cousins the Snow Crocus. In the spring they will only produce grassy foliage that will die back, vanishing without a trace in the late summer heat. However, a few months down the road typically October to November, out of nowhere slender stalks arise 8 to 10 inches tall topped with dark veined, pale lavender flowers blooming for several weeks.
