Delivered to you from September
The ‘wild’ pink flowered Erythronium, originally from the eastern seaboard of North America, right through from California to Vancouver but now a fairly widespread and welcome highlight in woodland gardens here. They seed around quite vigorously and mix in very naturally with wood anemones, A. apennina, and all those low gems of April. Never in flower for long, and the leaves sometimes marked with brown flecks.
Erythronium revolutum has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Erythronium revolutum does not really like limey soils, but humus or leaf-mould rich growing conditions suit it best. These are woodland plants for semi shade in spring and shade in summer
