Erythronium californicum 'White Beauty'
Common Name: California Fawn Lily Family: Liliaceae (The Lily Family)

Erythronium californicum 'White Beauty'

This easy to grow cultivar of species californicum hails from, as you might have guessed, California. Elegant and dainty clusters of pure white lily-like flowers centred with yellow arise over glossy, green-mottled foliage in early spring. Plant in a woodland setting or shade border with moisture retentive, fertile soil. Erythroniums will go dormant before summer so plant them near late-emerging perennials like hostas and toadlilies that will take over the show for the rest of the season.
