Sub-category: Colchicaceae family
Growing to 75 cm tall by 30 cm broad, it is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial with pendent leaves which are hairy on the undersides. Produces large yellow, solitary or paired, bell-shaped, pendent flowers. The top parts of the plant tend to bend downward due to the weight of the leaves and flowers. The light green stems are round, glabrous, and glaucous and the leaves are perfoliate since the stem appears to come through the leaves at the base.
Blooms in mid- to late spring.
