The most vigorous of the double flowered Colchicum. I like it, but I can understand people who don't. When the flowers fade , they turn to unpleasant lilac mush!

Introduced by Zocher & co and said to be a hybrid between C. autumnale 'Alboplenum' and C. speciosum 'Album', the intention was clerly to raise a large flowered white double, a hope that has still to be realised. This large flowered, vigorous lilac double can hardly be described as a failure.
