Autumn-Blooming Colchicum Around My Farm

Wherever you live, I hope you’re able to enjoy the beautiful blooms of those fall perennials called Colchicum.

I love Colchicum and have enjoyed the flowers for many years. Colchicum produces such cheerful colors when most other plants have faded. Over the seasons, we’ve planted a number of colchicum bulb-like corms around my farm - near my front gate, along the edge of my Stewartia garden, and under my tall, handsome bald cypress trees. I am so happy these plants are flourishing and have multiplied in numbers. The blossoms are gorgeous with large, elongated petals of fuchsia and soft lilac - they add a perfect touch of springlike beauty.

Enjoy these photos.
