Trout lilies in flower

Erythronium rostratum A2AL-065


Among many flowers in the garden today are the native trout lilies, Erythronium rostratum (Ohio to Texas).  This small woodland ephemeral perennial is amazing, both for its foliage and flowers.  By May, it’s gone to sleep for the summer.  We are growing these from seed, which should take 2-3 years to have flowering-size plants to share.  Would anyone purchase these if we had them available?

  1. Yes, I would buy them. A northern species grows in the upper meadows and woodlands in the Cascade Mtns of Washington State. They are a creamy white and pale yellow with the same leaf, just lovely. I would love a Texas native.
