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?
I would buy them.
I would buy them
I love them. Are they deer resistant?
A great question. I’ve never noticed deer munching on them in the wild, but I’d love to hear from others.
I would certainly buy them – are they hardy to zone 5?
I would think so.
They grow wild and thrive here in zone 5
I’d buy them!
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.
Oh yes….absolutely!! How hardy are they?
I would love to have some please let us know when they become available.
Hillsides of trout lilies–spectacular sights! I would love to have a source for them.
