‘Waterlily’ is a hybrid resulting from a cross of Colchicum autumnale ‘Alboplenum’ and Colchicum speciosum ‘Album’. The flower has the form of a water lily. Blossoms are large, fully double, and while they have been described as lilac-pink flowers, they are so close to white that I have to call them white. It blooms late September for us on naked stems to 6″ tall. Each corm will produce from 1-6 flowers.
Dig and divide during the mid-summer dormant period. Will naturalize over time if it is happy with its location.
