Erythronium are spring-flowering perennial plants with elegant pendant flowers and attractive mottled glossy leaves. Our collection has taken many years to develop. It takes at least 5 years to grow a flowering sized bulb from seed.
The species and cultivars of Erythronium that we offer are all selected 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 dried out.
The best time to buy and 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.
Please note: We send these to you as dormant, freshly lifted, flowering size bulbs from July through to September ready for potting up or planting directly into the garden.
