That looks more like pusillum?

Anthony

I have not seen pusillum before, and assumed cupanii.

Can someone please confirm the identification.

I think cupanii has a pair of large, wide (~1+ cm), leaves whereas pusillum has more, narrow (~05 cm) leaves.

Here is Colchicum atticum (syn. Merendera attica) flowering much earlier and with larger flowers than in 2007.

Same treatment as your Narcissus Gerd?

Sadly Luit died on 14th October 2016 - happily we can still enjoy his posts to the Forum

Here are the leaves of Colchicum cupanii. Sadly this Colchicum like many other small species in my collection died this year while dormant

Luit,
Not the VIP treatment as my autum flowering daffs had, only totally dry inside the greenhouse.
