Erythronium White Beauty is probably the best erythronium for the garden and a trip to Knightshayes in Devon in April will show you why. Like all Erythroniums it needs shade and a dry dormant period, The stems stand 9" (20cm) high with large white blooms with swept back petals, each with a rusty red basal ring, hanging over attractively white mottled leaves. A very good garden plant which produces offsets freely, forming large clumps.
Erythronium White Beauty tubers should not be allowed to dry out and planted gently 5" (12.5cm) apart in a light soil enriched with humus in cool, well-drained position where it will not become sun-baked in summer, under shrubs and trees, whose roots will take away excess moisture in summer would be ideal.
