Description Fine Print
 
Erythronium americanum is a lovely, colony-forming, spring ephemeral with grey-green, burgundy-mottled leaves. It has bright yellow, nodding, lily-like flowers in early spring. Plant yellow dogtooth violet in a woodland setting or shade border with moisture retentive, fertile soil. Erythronium will go dormant before summer so plant them near late-emerging perennials like Hosta and toadlilies. Some wild colonies are thought to be more than 300 years old. Eastern North America from Newfoundland to Ontario south through most of the eastern US.
