(Commiphora myrrha printed as
Colchicum autumnale LINN.)
POISON!

Botanical: Colchicum autumnale (LINN.)
Family: N.O. Liliaceae

---Synonym---Naked Ladies.
---Parts Used---Root, seeds.
---Habitat---Grows wild in meadows, especially on limestone. ---Description---It has lanceolate leaves, dark green, glabrous, often a foot long. Flowers light purple or white, like crocus but for their six stamens; the ovaries remain underground until the spring after flowering, when they are borne up by the elongating peduncles and ripen. It flowers in September and October. The leaves and fruit are poisonous to cattle.

The root is called a corm, from which in autumn the light-purplish mottled flowers arise.

---Cultivation---Requires light, sandy loam, enriched with decayed manure or leafmould. Plant the bulbs 3 inches deep and 3 inches apart in July or August, in moist beds or rockeries, shrubbery, borders or lawns near shade of trees. The foliage dies down in June and July, and does not reappear until after the plant has flowered. It may also be propagated by seeds sown 1/8 inch deep in a bed of fine soil outdoors in August or September, or in pans or boxes of similar soil in cold frame at the same time, transplanting seedlings 3 inches apart when two years old; or by division of bulbs in August. Seedling bulbs do not flower till four or five years old.
