Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum)

10.75

Found in large colonies in rich, moist wooded areas, Trout Lily is one of our most common spring ephemerals.  Its brown-mottled leaves resemble the markings of a brown or brook trout.  The reflexed petals are yellow, opening each morning and closing at night. It needs to be planted where it will receive ample sun in early spring. The Trout Lily is pollinated by ants, and after a seed is planted, it will take up to seven years to make a mature plant.
