Colchicum speciosum 'Album'This is the white form of Colchicum speciosum which, just as with the white form of byzantinum, is called ‘Album.’ Like the typical speciosum, the flower is taller and larger than the typical byzantinum, and not nearly as generous with its blossoms, at least this year. They’re elegant and demure, above the kind of flopsy behavior of their byzantinum cousins, but more able to compete for attention with the larger plants in the garden.

You want one, you know you do.

When dealing with frost it is always best to be paranoid. In the spring never think it is too late for one more frost to come. And in the fall never think it too early.
