Colchicum ( Meadow Saffron )
Colchicum is easy to grow and it blooms several weeks later.
This bulb can have flowers with no water and soil. But it has more flowes when it was planted in soil. Blooming time is Autumn and the leaves appear in the next spring.
Lily family, colchicum genus.
Language of the flowers. My best days are past.
