   Just saw the posting re Hinkley's ridiculous assessment of his Turkish colchicum.  Thanks for speaking out.  I've ( and others ) have always considered him a horticultural fraud.
    Best wishes,

I got a message about a rare Colchicum that was donated by Dan Hinkley for
an Ebay auction that would benefit the Elisabeth C. Miller Library of the
Northwest Horticultural Society. You can see the auction here:
I looked at it and was shocked at the (preset) opening bid of $200. 
From the photo it does not appear very different from any other C. 
peciosum except that the white zone in the throat is a bit larger. 
t could not possibly be worth that price.
