Dog Tooth Violet. Trout Lily. Avalanche Lily. Fawn Lily. The names go on and on but appellation aside, all you really need to know is that this is one great bulb for the shade garden. Perfect companion with Trilliums and Ferns and such a cheery flower. This is supposed to be a hybrid between E. tuolumense and E. revolutum but we struggle to see much revolutum - maybe a whisper. It is sterile giving testimony to its hybridity and as a result of not putting energy into seeds, it puts its efforts into offsets and so clumps up quickly into something quite impressive. Big fresh green leaves and cheerful yellow flowers 3-5 per stem in April. Nice bulbs.
