Trout Lily

SKU: AM014840
per Bag of 3
No longer available this season.
Trout Lily is the herald of spring in eastern woodlands, but this native wildflower also makes a gorgeous addition to any shade garden in zones 3-8. The plant’s name comes from its speckled green leaves (that resemble trout), and its nodding yellow flowers that look like miniature lilies. Plants can take up to four years to flower after planting, but the foliage is attractive enough that it’s worth the wait. (Erythronium)
