White Trout Lily

Erythronium albidum 

Small White Fawn Lily

érythrone blanchâtre

 

 

White Trout Lily, is a graceful spring ephemeral that blankets the forest floor with its delicate leaves. This native perennial produces solitary, nodding flowers with recurved white petals, emerging in early spring before the tree canopy fully develops. Its mottled leaves, resembling the markings of a brook trout, add visual interest to woodland gardens and shaded landscapes. White Trout Lily thrives in moist, well-drained soils beneath deciduous trees, forming expansive colonies over time. A valuable early nectar source for pollinators, this woodland gem provides a fleeting yet enchanting display in native plant gardens and naturalized woodland areas. It may take several years to flower 

 

Try planting this species with Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica), and Dutchman's Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria) in similar woodland habitats.
