Arnold Things are about 8 weeks early here in the UK at least for those I have spoken to. C tenorii which I bought in 2002 did nothing that year. This year it emerged about 10 days ago. My C. cupani is very late also. C. hungaricum which I know should be flowering in the spring was showing leaves and flower buds by mid November. Most of my species Tulips are above ground also. All of my Ranunculus ficaria cultivars have been in full leaf, but no flower so far, since the end of November. Mark N Ireland > Is that normal flowering time for colchicum tenorii for you.
