Erythronium tuolumnense ‘Pagoda’

Dog's tooth violet

A vigorous, bulbous perennial for growing and naturalising in areas of open woodland, dappled shade and under deciduous trees and shrubs. It's a genus that's often overlooked in favour of  ferns, hellebores and hostas. 

Perhaps it appears too delicate when in flower but Erythronium are pretty tough, growing in a wide range of habitats across Asia, Europe and North America . 

They do best in humus rich, well drained soil that does not dry out. 

When established clumps become too congested, they can be divided after flowering. 'Pagoda' has strongly bronze-mottled, deep green leaves and sulphur yellow flowers with brown central rings and deep yellow anthers. 

A very charming variety.
