Look What’s Blooming – September 20, 2012

Crocuses are usually one of the first harbingers of spring, but did you know there is also an autumn crocus? The Colchicum byzantinum blooms in September/October.  As a bonus… the specimen is known to be deer tolerant!

Come see it blooming at the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum!
