Description

An excellent hybrid raised by Susan Band between Erythronium White Beauty and revolutum, for a cool garden position. It has very attractive mid pink flowers up to about 20cm tall in April and bulks up well in prepared ground. . As with many erythronium this variety has lovely mottled foliage.

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. But their long lasting and pretty flowers aren’t their only asset. 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.

Cultivation Instructions

Before planting cultivate the soil to a depth of 4-6 inches deep.  Ensure soils are well drained and do not dry out in the summer.  Plant immediately on arrival approximately 3 inches deep in a good well drained soil. They enjoy semi shaded conditions and are ideal for planting in a woodland area.

Care tips:

Feed regularly during the growing season with high potash and phosphate foods such as  bone meal or tomato food.
