A multi-petalled variety with pinky-lilac flowers which open out widely in the sun - looking very like a small waterlily flower.  Surprisingly resilient to the weather despite its fragile looking appearance, it grows best with the aid and support of other plants or grass. Usually big bulbed and later flowering than other Colchicums.

All the Colchicum flower in the late autumn without their leaves. These emerge in the early winter after flowering and are at their largest in March and disappear in late June when the bulbs have a dry summer dormancy. Sunny conditions, perhaps with some shade suit them. Beware slug damage.
