cupani + autumn crocus
small pale pink flowers in the center-left, is Colchicum cupani, a truly
Colchicum species, this fact amplified by the seeming enormity of the fall
blooming all around it. In the lower left is Crocus tournefortii, in
the lower right is
C. goulimyi, just behind it in the upper right is C. niveus, and at the
top center is
C. serotinus 'Poseidon'.
In the photo below, we see a close-up view of
Colchicum cupani; quite a miniature
cutie which flowers in late October - November. The foliage appears
with the flowers,
and is small, shiny green, sharply pointed, and unobtrusive.
