  1. Love these…my native Erythronium are blooming in the meadow now.

    Lovely asnd elusive. I keep hoping mine will multiply but no luck so far.

    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

  4. I agree, the colour of the paintwork is so effective with your planting especially with such beautiful delicate blooms. Very special, Cathy.

    I remember falling in love with erythronium the first time I ever saw them at Sissinghurst on one beautiful spring day many years ago.

    • Cathy says:

      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.

  7. Kris P says:

    This is one of the prettiest flowers in my opinion. Sadly, growing it in Southern California IS a lost cause.

  8. I don’t have Erythronium – must get some!
