Colchicum autumnale, commonly known as autumn crocus, meadow saffron or naked lady, is a flower that resembles the true crocuses, but blooms in autumn.
In the Cronquist system, Colchicum belongs to the Lily family (Liliaceae).
The name "naked lady" comes from the fact that the flowers emerge from the ground long after the leaves have died back.
Being naked and unprotected runs like a red thread through the homeopathic remedy picture:
- Sensitive persons, more or less unprotected from external impressions, both mental and physical: physical, especially odors, mental: ailments from RUDENESS of OTHERS, wildness from misdeed of others.
- Oversensitive to all external impressions [mostly on account of PAIN; "gouty persons with extreme irritability of temper"].
- Wildness from bright light, odors, touch. ( (Vermeulen).
