Colchium (Colchicum)

Colchium - the largest of the Autumn 'crocus' - never tried them before, but impressed as only bought the very large bulbs end of August and they flowered by end of September. Also known as 'naked ladies' as the flowers appear without any leaf.

This looks very like the Autumn 'crocus' flowering right now in my garden.
