I have hungarium outside in a trough. I should have added more bulbs when I was doing them.

I have spilt off the posts from January to this new thread.... and here is a photo from  our friend Viggo in Norway, showing a good form of Colchicum szovitsii  'Vardahovit' that he got from Janis a couple of years ago. It seems to be increasing well.....

Apologies for the fact that this page now seems to have been read by a very few people.... the view count stayed with the old page!

Especially for ArneM, some photos of colchisum szovitsii

1. colchicum szovitsii in wild
2. colchicum szovitsii in wild
3. colchicum szovitsii dark form
4. colchicum szovitsii in my place
5. colchicum szovitsii in my place
6. very nice form of c. szovitsii with long tubes growing in St. peterburg Botanical garden
7. colchicum szovitsii (giant form) - very showy huge specimen equaling in sisez to autumn-blooming colchicum byzantinum. It seems to be polyploid, doesn't set seeds, has very big bulbs and produce from 2 to 3 beautiful flowers. the ordinary samples produce up to 20 blooms from very large bulbs.

Colchicum falcifolium in the bulb frame and a somewhat squashed kesselringii 'Prosperity' newly emerged from the snow.
Hristo passed away, after a long illness, on 11th November 2018. His support of SRGC was  much appreciated.

In 2007 I seperated my Colchicum kessellringii bulbs in to seperate troughs. Maybe I'll bring them back together :-\

Perhaps someone would be so kind as to give me a correct name for this little colchicum, bearing in mind that we are just starting autumn and this is the first. It was rescued with 30 brothers and sisters from a paddock a year ago, in flower and the patch where it came from is in full flower now. I'm assuming it is probably C. autumnale as where its parent patch is, was once an old farmhouse, long gone now but various plants are still in what was the garden. It is unlikely that anything more exotic than C. autumnale was growing here perhaps 100 or more years ago.

Thomas - this must be the clump in Erich Pasche 's garden ?
