In the spring of the year the leaves of the colchicum come up out of the ground and then disappear for the summer. In September you will spot the flowers and no leaves. It seems they appear like magic. One day there is nothing there and the next the showy blooms are saying “Hi here we are”. The bulbs are offered for sale in the fall of the year to plant for next year’s bloom. They are hardy depending on the variety from zones 4-8.
Join us for Mosaic Monday at Dear Little Red House with host Mary. Enjoy the last week of summer as Friday is the first day of Autumn and the Autumnal Equinox. Valerie
