CITES stands for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Speacies of wild fauna and flora. It was entered into force on 1st July 1975.
The aim of the convention is ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten the survival of species in the wild. In essence it means that all of these plants and bulbs are grown from cultivated and certified stocks.
Also included here is our Autumn Flowering bulb section. Autumn through to Winter can be as colourful as you care to make it with these late flowering options. The Colchicums, with their crocus like flowers provide perfect clumps of colour in late Summer through Autumn. The Autumn Crocus also provide splashes of colour when other perennials are dying down.
