Erythronium pagoda - Trout Lily - great native ephemeral - will naturalize!
Erythronium pagoda is a robust species native to the U.S. west coast. Highly acclaimed, it was given the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit. It yields lush, attractive ground level green foliage with variable garnet mottling and dark slender stems with one or more, pendant, fairy-cap shaped sulfur-yellow flowers with interior garnet-banded bases and yellow anthers.
Deer- and rodent-resistant, Erythronium pagoda is best grown in moist, humus-rich, neutral pH, well-draining soil in full sun to partial shade. Unlike most bulbs, it can handle, and actually prefers soil with a little bit more moisture in the spring, but likes drier conditions over the summer. A good naturalizer, if it’s happy where it’s planted and is left undisturbed.
