Dear All,

I have always known that Colchicum byzantinum was a sterile plant, likely to
be an hybrid of C.cilicicum or bivonae. But, with my great surprise, I have
found a few seeds, while I was cleaning out the messy tuft of yellowing
leaves this morning. Is this a lucky event?
I would like to hear comments from our colchicum experts :-)

many thanks
