Autumn crocus, with its two- to three-week September show of colorful clustered flowers, is only vaguely related to its spring cousin. It’s actually a member of the lily family and has larger blooms than the spring-flowering crocus. Corms (similar to bulbs) need to be planted earlier than most bulbs but can be mail-ordered in mid to late summer. They are poisonous to pets, so be mindful of where you plant them.
