Erythronium

Erythronium are a truly fabulous group of plants from Europe through Asia, with the greatest diversity in North America. They are woodland or alpine in aspect and some i.e. Erythronium dens-canis can be in both woodland or alpine. These beauties are on the whole easy to grow and will slowly multiply if left alone in a semi shaded or deciduous shade type bed. They should not be left in their pots but need to be planted out. They hate drying out so need to be kept moist at all times, so beware of dried out wisened old bulbs. Many are raised from seed but take up to five or more years to reach flowering size so are always, for us, a long term project.
