Erythronium dens-canis AGM.

These European native plants are commonly called Dogs tooth violets because the tuber resemble a canine tooth. The spurred mauve-pink flowers appear in spring on slender stems that rise above large, heavily mottled leaves.

This erythronium variety has won the RHS award of Garden Merit (AGM) as an excellent garden plant. Erythronium are shade loving plants that make excellent groundcover under trees or shrubs and in shaded woodland borders. They add colour and interest with showy leaves and dainty flowers.

Erythronium Pagoda AGM

With glossy mottled foliage, and up to 10 large, pale lemon flowers on each stem, the upswept petals give the plant its name. The large tubers are easy to plant and handle and it is one of the easiest erythroniums to grow.

Erythronium Pagoda was one of the first hybrids, it was discovered in the 19th century and it is still a great garden worthy plant.

This erythronium variety has won the RHS award of Garden Merit (AGM) as an excellent garden plant.

Erythronium Kondo

With up to 7 flowers on each stem, the pale buttermilk coloured flowers of this hybrid erythronium are tinged with green. These are pretty plants that associate well with other woodland bulbs. Erythroniums get their common name of Dogs tooth violets from the curved shape of their  tubers.
