Double Autumn Crocus (Colchicum ‘Water Lily’) in early spring. Bulb is growing leaves. Time to fertilize the plant for fall blooming. 重瓣秋水仙 ‘睡蓮’初春長葉要施肥養肥些,秋天才有花可開.

Very hardy flowering bulb.   This is blooming in autumn with lavender pink double flowers, growing large foliage in spring and summer.   Best growing in full sun location in organic soil.  Flowers do look alike water lily.  🙂   USDA Zones:4-9. Mature size:5″(H) X 3″-6″(W).  Propagate by bulbs/corms or offsets.  Toxic if ingested, direct contact may cause skin irritation.

非常強健的球根花卉是少見的秋天開花的植物的一種. 秋開重瓣粉紫色的花,春夏長大片的葉子.  最好是栽種在全日照處用有機沃土來栽培. 花形真的很像睡蓮. 🙂  很耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高5吋,寬幅3-6吋.  以無性繁殖來進行,球根/子球或側芽來繁殖.  有毒勿食,直接接觸的話可能引起皮膚不適.
