If your colchicums are only beginning to bloom, Jim, you obviously need to 
augment your collection <grin>.  C. bivonae 'Apollo' has been in flower for 
2 weeks, with C. bivonae hybrids such as 'Princess Astrid' following close 
on its heels (many hybrids debut in the last week of August or 
so).  Colchicum speciosum 'Ordu' is also well into bloom.  If you were able 
to grow C. graecum (which I would think would be a possibility), your 
colchicum season would start in early August (other species reputably 
flower even earlier, but I cannot personally attest to this).
