Erythronium 'White Beauty'
Variously reported to be a selection of both E. californicum and E. revolutum or perhaps some hybrid thereabouts, with origins tracing back to historical California nurserymen Carl Purdy and his collection of wild dug bulbs, Wild West indeed, one of those situations best chocked up to the ethos of a different era. Dappling of the leaves is subtler than many Erythroniums, akin to the play of light upon water. Reflexed lily-like flower with a delicate sunburst of soft yellow and streaks of dark red. A dapper woodland resident that would look equally at home in a swanky florist's shop. Moist, humusy soils preferred.
