This vigorous Colchicum, native to Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon, was recorded as early as 1597. The dried seeds and corms are the source of medicinal colchicum and colchicines—all parts are highly toxic if ingested. Therefore, these bulbs are deer and rodent resistant. Like daffodil leaves, the leaves of Autumn Crocus should not be removed until they naturally begin to turn yellow in early summer.
