Description

Joanna is a bulbous perennial to about 30cm with elliptical, mid-green leaves with brown marbling. In spring, upright stems produce up to eight pink-flushed, cream-yellow flowers with pale yellow anthers  made a superb addition to shady woodland areas in your garden and if happy will naturalise very well. This variety will grow to approx. 10 inches in height.

Erythronium are bulbous perennials with paired, ovate or broadly elliptic leaves, and leafless stems bearing one or more nodding, star-shaped flowers with recurved petals. Erythronium are wonderfully elegant with their slender, upright stems which each carry multiple blooms with exotic-looking reflexed petals. They also have attractive foliage too, some with striking mottled markings to add to their charm and extend the season of interest and ground cover right through to summer.

Awarded the RHS AGM (award of garden merit) for it’s performance in the garden.
