Luit,

120 days without a posting but then you come with these wonderful photographs of colchicums. Worth the wait, I think.

After the drought the flood of Colchicum is wonderful, Luit, and also it has meant that I am exploring a thread I knew nothing about and find fascinating  ;)  What Connoisseur Collections to enjoy and see side by side to compare and admire - the work, the dedication, the dream - fantastic  :)

Hello Luit,

thank you for posting the colchicum collection and the excellent photographs.
It is very helpful for identification and to see the differences between the various species and cultivars/hybrids.

Best wishes
Armin

A disadvantage of preparing and posting many named pictures is that I hardly have time to look
at other threads  :(. Well, now and then I have a short look, but rarely time left to make compliments
or comments.  ::) ::) ::)

Thanks for wonderful photos, Luit!!!!!!!!!

I am very pleased to see that this topic continues.
I enjoyed your photos much, though some made me confused regarding my some cultivars being true to name. There are many look-alikes among pale-purple varieties, which often makes it very difficult to identify which is which. For example, my 'Giant' has yellow anthers while yours, illustrated in the picture, is with orange ones. At the same time my Giganteum has orange anthers, while yours - yellow. But yours have very distinct funnel-shaped flowers, which tell about its accuracy.

Colchicum 'Neptun' looks strange and much different from mine. But in this case I am sure that mine is true to name (elongated petals, small base, darker coloration than ordinary pale-purple ones).

Zhirair, I cannot discuss about and if Colchicum are true to name, but the good thing is that many labels show the origin where plants came from.
When nothing is on the label then this is a plant cultivated many years in Holland, which of course does not always mean "true to name".

In this case you might ask the man (J.R. 2005), who originally delivered these bulbs. Maybe he can help you out??
