Get Out The Checkbook!

We've grown some fall-blooming colchicums, one being shown above, for probably twenty years, but I find that there are several species of spring-blooming colchicums that might stand a chance of growing in our garden. Actually, we already grow what used to be Bulbocodium vernum, which is now classified as a colchicum, so we have a start.
I'm not quite sure why I would be worked up over colchicums that bloom in the spring, but we're not talking about logic here, anyway...this is gardening.

"but we're not talking about logic here, anyway...this is gardening"

A truer line never written...
What is it about seed catalogs? They seem to have this hypnotic pull over gardeners, especially me. I buy more seeds than I can possibly grow, and still I yearn for the new and beautiful things I can't grow (wrong growing region or not enough sun).

They are delicate little beauties. Are they expensive?
These are lovely!

Fall blooming ones are on my "wish list." ;-) They are lovely, aren't they?
Nancy... I finally went cold turkey on buying seeds; I just don't need a hundred of anything1, is $5 expensive; I suppose so, for a bulb that may or may not survive.

Amy... I am very envious of gardeners who have these growing all over the place.

shady... I've got a few fall bloomers (they came in from my first garden).
