Colchium 'Faberge's Silver'
This is a connoisseur's Colchicum from Lithuanian bulb grower Leonid Bondarenko. You can probably guess from the cultivar name that the bloom is egg-shaped, and indeed keeps that form throughout the life of the flower. A silvery sheen Bondarenko calls its "patina" washes over the outer surfaces (i.e. backs) of the lilac petals; their tips are adorned with a whitish color. Subtle but beautiful when covered with the jeweled droplets of the morning dew.
