One of Stephen Lacey's favourite autumn flowering bulbs, Colchicum speciosum brightens up the garden with its deep pink to purple blooms. Perfect for the front of the border or in a rockery, it looks best when planted in clumps. The flowers appear alone, with the leaves following in spring. Grow in moist but well-drained soil planting 10cm (4in) deep in early autumn. Be warned that all parts of the plant are highly toxic if eaten.
