Flowers: April-May.  Plant in full shade or woodland.  HxS 15x15cm

This lovely native Erythronium, or dog’s tooth violet, has beautifully mottled leaves in green, brown or purple.  The pink to lilac, sometimes white, flowers are held above the foliage in early spring and are attractive to pollinators.  The plants will flower for a long period if kept in shady conditions.  Easy to grow.  May be kept in their pots and planted out when flowering has finished. Pot size 1 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

Erythronium will go dormant in late summer and this is the best time to collect offset bulbs, which can be potted and planted out the following year.  The addition of a liquid fertiliser after flowering will help to build up the bulbs.
