Erythronium – Fawn Lily

This is a hardy, spring flowering bulb growing to 30cm, and working as ground-cover once established. Nodding yellow, pink or white flowers over marbled foliage in early spring.

There are few Erythroniums in Karin’s Garden, though I am not sure why. They flower in Late August / Early September and provide a wonderful continuation from Snowdrops and Crocus. They are not easy to find, so get them whenever you can. And the nomenclature may be uncertain – if you see a yellow variety named as E. revolutum that is unlikely to be right. But it honestly does not matter, they are all charming.
