Description

Erythronium revolutum ‘Knightshayes Pink’  is a bulbous perennial which grows up to 35cm in height.  A native of Western North America, it originated in the National Trust’s lovely woodland garden near Tiverton in Devon. A form or hybrid of Erythronium revolutum, the ‘Knightshayes’ strain is a particularly striking one, with its flowers a beautiful pink shade and superb mottled leaves in green and maroon. The flowers will self-seed when happy, building up a little colony year after year where left undisturbed.

Erythronium revolutum ‘Knightshayes Pink’  flowers in April. Their leaves die back in June and the bulbs become dormant over the summer. 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. 

The species and cultivars of  Erythronium that we offer are all selected because they are good garden plants.  They grow well in dappled shade and the bulbs should be kept damp and not dried out. 

Our collection has taken many years to develop. It takes at least 5 years to grow a flowering sized bulb from seed and propagation by division is slow.
