Thanks Mark, but as I have three corms flowering now and all the flowers are white I suspect that it is white flowering species rather than a white form.

I have printed out a key and will see what I can come up with.

Ian:

Okay what's the Colchicum germination secret?

Other than sitting and growing grey waiting.
