The autumn Colchicums have started!
1) a seedling of one of the smaller varieties
2) an old variety I got in the 1980s from a friend as "Lilac Major" though that doesn't seem to be a proper name. The consensus here is that it's a form of Colchicum byzantinum

This is a colchicum we got from Marcus Harvey as "Atropurpureum" which is apparently not a valid name. WHen I discussed it with Marcus a while ago I think we decided it was probably a dark form of C. cilicium

Raised from seed as C. sibthorpiae (which I was told it isn't) -  it is distinctive when it first emerges

Jon B (Mini-Bulblover on this Forum) gave these to me as seed raised from Marcus Harvey as "small species"
