Erythronium americanum is a North American species of herbaceous flowering plant in the lily family. The range is from Labrador south to Georgia, west to Mississippi, and north to Minnesota.

Best grown in moist, acidic, humusy soils in part shade to full shade. In addition, offsets from mature plants may be harvested and planted. Plant corms 2-3” deep and 4-5” apart in fall. Corms of this species produce stolons, and plants will slowly spread to form large colonies if left undisturbed in optimum growing conditions. . This is a spring ephemeral whose foliage disappears by late spring as the plant goes dormant.

Our plants are cultivated on private property and not dug from the wild.
