Hi, a fellow grower has the plant illustrated as Colchicum kurdicum (Merendera kurdica) but I thopugh tthis should be pink or purplish. Any experts out here who can confirm th eidentity or offer an alternative identification?

and why is the picture sideways....I'm sorry I haven't a clue, the source is the right way up!

Is this in flower now?  as Colchicum kurdicum is a spring flowering species.  Other than that, I can offer no help except to turn the picture round

In flower now so not C kurdicum. Anyone got any ideas?
