Colchicum bakeri

9th September 2012

In the last couple of years I have planted a number of new shrubs around the place and while they are young there is a lot of room around them. I hate to see the place bare, so I have started to plant Colchicum. The plan is to have something leafy to cover the ground and provide interest when the autumn is looking grey and windy.
Colchicum bakeri doesn't seem to exist as a recognised name. The plant came from Tale Valley Nursery, who got it from Mike Salmon, so it has an excellent provenance despite it's deficiencies in documentation.
It seems to be a good plant.
