Herbstzeitlose Colchicum autumnale aka autumn crocus, from my garden in Ritterhude: Attachments (2)

Here are two fotos of Herbstzeitlose Colchicum autumnale
Other names are autumn Crocus, meadow saffron or naked lady, but it is NOT Saffran.
The name “naked lady” comes from the fact that the flowers emerge from the ground long after the leaves have died back.
Fotos taken on 18. Sept. 2010 in my garden in Ritterhude.
I don’t find any fotos of the leaves, perhaps i did not take any. Shall do next year.
