Colchicum 'Waterlily' delights with big 4- to 5-inch fall flowers on leafless stems that appear weeks after the foliage has died back. What a delightful autumn surprise.

Colchicum 'Waterlily' is a standout variety, sporting foliage in spring and early summer followed by blooms in fall. The flowers are soft lavender-pink, arising in groups up to half a dozen on low-growing plants. Long-lasting and dependable, they are an excellent source of carefree color for the border and woodland garden.

Easy to grow from fall-planted bulbs, this Colchicum 'Waterlily' can also be forced indoors by setting it on a bed of pebbles in a pan of shallow water. Deer, rabbits, voles, and gophers will leave the bulb alone in the garden—it is poisonous, and pests stay away.
