Merendera was a small cormous European and Asian genus in Colchicaceae. In the paper A phylogenetic analysis of the genus Colchicum L. (Colchicaceae) based on sequences from six plastid regions (Persson et al. 2011), the genus Merendera was discovered to be polyphyletic (meaning the species have evolved from separate ancestors). In 2023 Merendera is consider to be synonymous with Colchicum. Flowers differed by having no tube, just six separate segments. Species were winter growing with funnel shaped white, pink, or purple flowers. Some species flowered in the fall and some in the spring.
