The darling flowers are a rich, rosy pink with a white base. The blooms reach 4-6cm across and coyly face downward, though the petals recurve to show off more colour, and their decorative stamens. A reliable performer that multiplies well.

The sought after, ornamental foliage emerges early spring, it is mid green with mahogany marbling. The leaves are oval shaped and grow 10-15cm long.

As woodland plants, Erythronium love a cool garden spot with moist, well drained soil – think Hostas. They require some shade so plant under deciduous trees or in a shaded rock garden. Water in, and keep moist during active growth, they don’t like to dry out.

The botanical name, Erythronium is from the Green; erythros meaning red for the foliage or some of the species blooms, and dens-canis – dens for tooth and canis for dog. The bulbs look a little like a dog’s tooth. Another common name is Trout Lily as the foliage is reminiscent of the fish shape and pattern.
