About Autumn Flowers - Sternbergia Clusiana

Many of the plants that bloom in late summer and early autumn, such as the Crocus and the Pancratium are bulbous, allowing them to flower without leaves. The Muscari blooms slightly earlier, just after the first rain, when its leaves sprout. Thus, it blossoms at the expense of reserves from the previous year. At this time of year there are few insects and many of the flowering plants have especially large blossoms – the Crocus and the Pancratium can be seen from afar while the Muscari is less attractive and can develop seeds without pollination. All three of these bulbous plants are potentially readily available sources of food for animals The bulbs of all three species contain toxic compounds which protect them from preying.
