DiOhio's Journal: Trout Lily, Yellow Erythronium americanum Lily Family (Liliaceae) Wildflower Beds, Hosta beds, Woods

  • Member: DiOhio
  • Journal: Default
  • Category: Wildflowers
  • Status: Established

Initial Notes:

Perennial native. Also called Dogtooth Violet but is not a violet (dogtooth refers to the tooth shape of its underground bulb). Trout comes from its mottled leaves.
May take up to 7 years for plant to mature enough to flower. One of our ravines is covered with Trout Lily in the spring but very few flowers are seen. Reproduces mainly by underground bulbs. Nearly identical to White Trout Lily.
Transplanted several to wildflower beds and are doing nicely.
VERY difficult to dig........bulbs are VERY DEEP.
