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
http://flora.huji.ac.il/browse.asp/…  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.

Thanks
