Colchicum - hello
Mon, 22 Sep 2008 13:02:51 PDT
By far my best performer among the colchicums is C. autumnale album, that is bulking up nicely here, there, and everywhere.  A more recent addition is the vibrant pink-purple C. a. 'Nancy Lindsey', that bids fair to be just as vigorous.
C. speciosum is also fine; C. agrippinum okay but not as vigorous.

Also, I've just moved Sternbergia lutea outdoors from a coldframe situation.  I only hope I see these yellow blooms again next year.

Among the totally non-bulbous, Saxifraga fortunei is beginning to bloom.
