This is a recent acquisition from Odyssey Bulbs
, in full, though battered, bloom on September 15th. It does not seem to be as tesselated (checkered) as Colchicum agrippinum
. But since this is its first year, and since I was out of town for its peak bloom, we’ll revisit that issue next year. It appears it will be an early bloomer, as it couldn’t wait until it was planted, but was blooming in the shipping box
Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment. It bursts upon a man every year…as though it had never happened before, but had just been shown by God how to do it, and tried, and found the impossible possible.
