The Living Forest (338) : Autumn Crocus

Everywhere in the forest, the Autumn Crocuses are in full bloom at the moment.

Autumn Crocus (also known as Naked Lady) is a flower that resembles the true crocuses, but blooms late summer/early autumn.

The name "Naked Lady" comes from the fact that the flowers emerge from the ground long time after the leaves have died.

Deadly poisonous !

Dutch name : Herfsttijloos
German name : Herbstzeitlose
Latin name : Colchicum autumnale (syn. Colchicum multiflorum)
