Colchicum autumnale 'Album'
The flowers of this Autumn Meadow Saffron ‘Album’ (Colchicum autumnale) look like crocuses at first glance. The difference is that the flowers of the ‘Album’ flower in autumn before the leaves appear in in spring. The corms can simply be placed on the window-sill without water or soil. It’s amazing that even without soil how beautifully they flower. After flowering they can be planted out in the garden or in pots, and they can stay outdoors to hibernate throughout winter as they are completely hardy.

Before planting the corms in the garden or a planter start them off indoors on a sunny windowsill. They do not need any soil as it blooms quite naturally just being placed on the windowsill! After they have flowered they can then be planted in the garden or in pots or planters. Plant the corms in a planting hole that is three times as deep as the height of the corm, a corm of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole with a planting distance of about 10 cm. Loosen the soil thoroughly and plant the corms point upwards and the roots down. Refill the hole with soil and water immediately. Colchicum autumnale ‘Album’ grows best in nutritious soil that is not too dry and prefers a spot in full sun or partial shade.


The corms of the autumn crocus can remain in the same spot for years and are ideal for naturalising. The plants will become increasingly beautiful with each year. Colchicum autumnale ‘Album’ is an easy-to-grow plant that demands little care.


The flowers of Colchicum autumnale ‘Album’ closely resemble those of the crocus. The highlight of the autumn crocus is the white flowers during the autumn followed by the long, shiny leaves appearing in spring. You can easily distinguish the Colchicum from the crocus? Colchicum has 6 stamens whilst the crocus only has 3. You can also use the Colchicum as a 'dry flowerer'. Simply place the corms on a bright, warm windowsill (without soil) and the flowers will soon appear. After flowering they can be planted in the garden. The entire plant is toxic.
