Description

One of the most beautiful of the Fall Crocus (and rare!), the flowers of the Colchicum montanum are long and narrow, as well as the foliage is long and narrow. Fall crocus displays it's flower in the fall, without any foliage on the plants! In spring, shiny, strap-like, thick foliage emerges. The foliage goes dormant in summer (similar to other spring bulbs) making way for the mass of flowers in the fall. These plants multiply well, and form large drifts.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 10-15 cm, 4-6"

Location: Sun or part shade

Hardiness zones: 5-9

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 3

Germination: As with many perennials, these seeds require a period of moist cold to help them grow. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:

Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 6-8 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period.

Alternatively, these seeds can also be planted outdoors in fall or winter, while temperatures are cold (but ground is workable) to germinate naturally in spring. Be sure to mark the area where you planted them, and that the soil is consistently moist. Patience is needed, but they are well worth the wait!
