Colchicum graecum

Dear All,

Yesterday I noticed that I have first flowering on Colchicum graecum,
which was planted last fall.  Does it typically bloom so early?  Lycoris
squamigera has just finished blooming, and L. sprengeri has yet to bloom.

Perhaps the unusually wet and comparatively cool temperatures we've had
this year are responsible?  I'd welcome any ideas to explain this
unexpected surprise.
