Speaking of Colchicum, need advice for rescuing some bulbs

6 years ago

I have some colchicum growing within an Annabel hydrangea. The hydrangeas suckers have slowly over grown the spot the bulbs were planted. I cut the hydrangea back every winter, so the colchicum keeps sending up lots of healthy leaves in the spring and some flowers persist. I think there used to be white ones in there too. It looks like there are more buds coming up, so hopefully some of them are white flowered colchicum. How and when should I go about relocating these bulbs? I think I can transplant the hydrangea suckers, so I won't be as hesitant to hack into the annabels. Here's a photo

These are the ones closest to the outside of the hydrangea. There are some deeper in.
