Erythronium californicum Pagoda

This robust hybrid cross yields up to ten, 2"-wide, lily-like, pendant sulfur-yellow flowers with recurved petals on slender, dark stems over attractive, bronze- or brown-mottled foliage. The tallest and largest of all, its nodding flowers have variable reddish rings. Highly acclaimed, it was given the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. Its flowers are larger and grow taller than those of either of its parents, Erythronium tuolumnense and Erythronium revolutum, 12" to 14".

  • Information
  • Erythronium
    Commonly referred to as The Dog’s Tooth Violet, The Trout Lily, The Fawn Lily or The Avalanche Lily, Erythronium are easy to grow despite the fact that they hate being out of the soil. Our two naturalizing bee-loved perennials are fleshy, long, pointed corms out of the original species native to U.S. Pacific coast forests and meadows circa 1900. Perfect for shade gardens, they prefer rich, moist soil and light shade. Plant immediately once received. Deer- and rodent-resistant, Erythronium 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, it naturalizes by bulb offsets (called bulbils: baby bulbs on the sides of the mother bulb you’ve planted) and occasionally by self-sowing seed. It’s terrific planted en masse in natural settings like sun-dappled woodlands, around shrubbery and in partial shade gardens. You’ll need four to six bulbs per square foot. (Square footage is determined multiplying the planting site’s length times its width.) Bulb size: 10 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April/May. Plant 4" deep and 6" apart immediately upon receipt: they don’t like being out of the soil. HZ: 4-8. Height: 12" to 14".
