Colchicum woronovii (Autumn Crocus)
[5 seeds-zaden]

Very rare native to mountainous areas of the Caucasus region, this large plant blooms in autumn producing reddish-violet flowers on stems up to twelve inches tall. As with most other varieties, the leaves appear in the spring, before yellowing, withering and dying back as summer progresses. Stronger stemmed, and later than C.autumnale, with taller more richly coloured flowers, it is probably the best of the larger forms, naturalising easily.

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and will sometimes actually prevent germination so be very patient. Many species will only actually germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until they are of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
