Colchicum bornmuelleri is native to Turkey and was first introduced to gardens in 1889. The dried seeds and corms are the source of medicinal colchicum and colchicines—all parts are highly toxic if ingested. Therefore, this bulb is deer and rodent resistant. Like daffodil leaves, the leaves of False Autumn Crocus should not be removed until they naturally begin to turn yellow in early summer.
