Product Description

Trout Lily - Erythronium americanum

The Trout Lily, also known as the Dog Toothed Violet or Woodland Glory, is a beautiful, flowering plant that is native to eastern North America. The green and brown spotted foliage is said to resemble the markings seen on the Brown Trout. It is a perennial, which means there is a bulb that will regrow year after year with the proper care. The plant is known for it was medicinal benefits and was used to aid in wound care and healing by Native Americans.


Trout lily are unique plants you will want to add to your garden.

They do very well in groups and prefer areas ranging from full shade to partial sun. An area that is speckled with light through large trees would be perfect for this flowering beauty. This plant is an excellent choice if you are in need of a ground covering plant in areas that are very shady, or if you have low light areas that you would like to add a great pop of color to in the spring. One of the best features of this beauty is that it is usually flowering before most other perennials and even when it is not in its full spring bloom, during the summer and fall seasons, the mottled leaves of this plant are stunning in their own right. It only requires light to moderate amounts of water and prefers drier soil during dormancy. When spring arrives, these little treasures seem to pop up almost overnight and make their presence known.

Trout Lily grow best in USDA zones 3-9.

The downward facing, bell-shaped blooms can be cut and brought indoors for use in a vase or an arrangement. These magnificent plants, when left undisturbed, will form clusters or colonies on their own and are sure to make a fabulous prospect to your garden with its showy blooms of yellow or white in early spring.


The Trout Lily is shipped bare root.

    Very healthy bare root

    Apr 12, 2024 Reviewer: Kathy J Daniel

    The only reason I am not giving them a 5-star is because I have only seen the roots. I can’t wait for them to grow and bloom!
