Meadow saffron (Colchicum autumnale L.): a medicinal plant to domesticate

, : Meadow saffron (Colchicum autumnale L.): a medicinal plant to domesticate. Revue Suisse d' Agriculture 27(2): 93-100

The biology of C. autumnale and its potential for cultivation are discussed. The seeds contain a number of alkaloids with medicinal properties. Chemical synthesis of these compounds is not economical and all colchicine and colchicoside are produced from plants. Seeds are generally collected from wild populations, mostly in Turkey and the Balkans, and their quality varies considerably.
