The species and cultivars of Erythronium that we offer have been chosen because they are good garden plants and are hardy in the British Isles. They grow well in dappled shade and the bulbs should be kept damp and not left to dry out. The best time to plant Erythronium bulbs is in July/August/September, because they will root down in the autumn while the soil is still warm. The attractive glossy leaves start to emerge towards the end of February, and flower from late March through April.
Plant some Erythronium bulbs this summer and have something new and exciting to look forward to next Spring.
