Love these…my native Erythronium are blooming in the meadow now.
Oh how lovely to see them in a naturalised setting ☺
Lovely asnd elusive. I keep hoping mine will multiply but no luck so far.
Too soon to say with this one…
Your blue/green/grey paint is such a good foil for other colours. I remember thinking how good the acer griseum looked against it but the soft yellow of the erythronium looks even better. I noticed mine were out the other day and clumping up nicely – at last. They are in good company with pale yellow epimedium and primroses and with a backdrop of hedera ‘sulphur heart ‘ and syringa.
That sounds lovely – and in fact mine have the lingering company of a pale yellow hellebore and the new yellow green leaves of an aquilegia
I agree, the colour of the paintwork is so effective with your planting especially with such beautiful delicate blooms. Very special, Cathy.
Thanks Kate. I have just stocked up on ‘Wild Thyme’ whilst it was on special offer as there will always be more things to paint!
I remember falling in love with erythronium the first time I ever saw them at Sissinghurst on one beautiful spring day many years ago.
Isn’t it strange how we can often remember the first time we saw a plant we have become fond of? In only its second year, it is too early to feel mine is established
Always a favourite and if they like your garden they will naturalise quite nicely.
Now in it’s second year, so I am hopeful. I have a first year white one flowering now too – hurrah!
This is one of the prettiest flowers in my opinion. Sadly, growing it in Southern California IS a lost cause.
I don’t have Erythronium – must get some!
This is now in it’s 2nd year, so not established enough to be confident that it will stay…
