Product Information

If you're looking for a plant a little more out of the ordinary, then the Erythronium, or Dog's Tooth Violet, fits the bill magically.

Best flowering in partial shade, they thrive in a woodland setting, under shrubs or deciduous trees where their beautiful, nodding star-shaped flowers hang daintily above their delightful marbled foliage.

Erythroniums flower from March to April, dying down by June, so they can be grown under deciduous trees that come into leaf from late spring, preferring summer shade and fertile, humus-rich soil that is neither too wet nor too dry.

Their common name refers to the shape of the bulbs with resemble canine teeth and which are easily damaged and often break if disturbed, so take care if you're moving them - in fact they're better off left alone where they will happily multiply, gradually forming a large clump.

This wonderful variety provides the brightest yellow flowers, each flower stem carrying 4 to 5 large canary yellow blooms, each with a brown ring in the centre. The marbled foliage on this variety is a lovely added bonus! Height 20cm (8 in).

Supplied as a pack of 5 bulbs, ready to plant straight out.

Top Tips

Erythroniums hate being moved, so wait three years at least before splitting or transplanting.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Erythronium:

  • Plant in semi shade under trees or in shady borders. Can also be grown in pots as long as they don't sit in the sun and are kept regularly watered as they should not be allowed to dry out.
  • Plant bulbs into well worked soil about 12cm (5in) deep and 5cm (2in) apart, with the pointed end facing upwards. After planting, water well to settle soil around the bulbs - roots will form during the autumn.
  • They can also be planted in thin turf where given time will naturalise.


 

Aftercare Advice for Dog's Tooth Violets:

  • The bulbs have the ability to pull themselves down to the correct depth and in dry years will be much deeper than you would expect.
  • They need a plentiful water supply while in active growth but prefer to be on the drier side in summer, so be careful not to overwater.

 

Trimming your Erythroniums:

  • Leave the foliage to die back naturally.
