I have a bulb of Colchicum hierosolymitanum that was rescued from a
construction area. It just finished flowering. The bulb is the size of a
flattened ping pong ball. I have 2 questions:

1) Colchicum hierosolymitanum is not listed on the PBS site, but that's
what it is based on The Hebrew University Jerusalem website…  Any idea
what else it may be called or does the PBS site need an update? I know
tehre afre lumpers and splitters, but...

2) Any way to propagate this bulb besides seed? After many years of
watching this plant bloom in situ, I have never seen it set seed.

Jerusalem, Israel usda zone 9b
