Autumn Crocus c l Anthony

From a series of compilations published by Gollancz, beginning in 1929 with Famous Plays of Today, then continuing more or less annually until 1938-39 (and, anomalously, 1954). 1. The Barretts of Wimpole Street, by Rudolf Besier. The scene is the same throughout: as the author archly remarks in the headnote, this comedy took place in Elizabeth Barrett s room in 1845. It portrays her long-postponed meeting and romance with an irresistibly buoyant Robert …

Zephyranthes Autumn Crocus

Storm lilies, autumn crocus or rain lilies are small bulbs in the genus Zephyranthes. These under rated plants deserve to be more widely grown in subtropical and tropical gardens. They are tough and undemanding, and soon form large clumps that flower readily over summer in response to warm and moist conditions. Flowering is synchronised – that is, plants will flower simultaneously together over a wide region. The flowering seems to be stimulated by …

Autumn crocus indoors

Yes, it’s true. The fall-blooming crocus I wrote about for last month’s Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day are still blooming. Some of the pale ones came up and are trying to bloom, thanks to a series of unseasonably warm days. The leaves of the pale ones emerge simultaneously with the flowers, so all the grass-like crocus leaves that you see are probably C. cartwrightianus ‘Albus’. As always, you can click on any photo to enlarge it. I also have a bloom …

Like most people I have many interests, not just workshop and it seems silly not to share this. I apologise for the rambling length of this film, but the subject matter seems to require it. At 08:16 in the youtube embed a juvenile thrush appears and photographs beautifully in the dappled shade.

Autumn crocus Facts

One of the first autumn wildflowers in Italy is the sternbergia lutea with its bright yellow flower that has a crocus-like shape. In fact, it is often erroneously referred to as Autumn Crocus. It is actually more close related to the narcissus (daffodil) in the amaryllidaceae family. The easiest way to spot the difference is by noting the number of stamens in the flower- a crocus has just three, while the sternbergia lutea has six. Soon after the …

Autumn crocus bloom time

I am always looking for ways to extend the bloom season later into the fall and earlier into the spring. I had planted some Crocus speciosus at my old garden intermingled with some colchicum, thinking they would bloom together. Wrong! The crocus bloomed later. I took advantage of that fact here at the new house, and planted these crocus generously in front of a floor to ceiling window, where they can be appreciated from the comfort of a woodstove-heated …
