Product Details

Product Details

A robust hybrid, bulb, Erythronium 'Pagoda' bears graceful yellow flowers with a reddish-brown ring at the center. The leaves are a beautiful bright green. It's a strong grower and taller than other Erythroniums.

Trout Lilies are easy to grow in partial shade especially at the feet of trees and shrubs, where the soil is rich and woodsy. Do not let them dry out in summer, or drown in winter, and you will be rewarded with graceful blooms in April and early May.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

I'm overjoyed by how lovely these little woodland flowers are. It's the last week in April and my first has just bloomed, with others looking poised for next week. Like others, I had lots of winter anxiety that they would fail or that some vile creature would dig up the bulbs, but nearly 100% of what I've planted has appeared. They are ethereal, glossy, and look particularly exotic against a wash of fallen camellia petals from a neighbor's shrub. I plan to plant a few more this coming fall.

Spectacular from the start

What a great native spring ephemeral! I got them in the ground as soon as they arrived and they started coming up the first week in March. By the end of the month each plant had at least one flower stalk with the cheery yellow blossoms beginning to open. The foliage is attractive, too, though it should disappear later in the summer. One of the bulbs I ordered was dug up over the winter by some critter but the others all flourished.

Lovely, if they bloom

Five of 6 bulbs emerged with healthy looking leaves. Only two flowered; two of the others had only dried flower buds; the fifth one only had leaves. Hopefully they'll all bloom next year. When these flower, they're absolutely lovely with several flowers per stem. Taller than other trout lilies and quite striking.

No sign yet

The 2015 winter in MA was very cold and snowy followed by a spring in which there has been very little rain. Prehaps that is why I have not seen any sign of these hoped for beauties. I'm hoping they are just very delayed as I had some early spring flowers just bloom in May and some others that only put out foliage.

Beautiful Plants

These plants are great! I was worried about our very cold winter here - Feb 2015 never saw a day above freezing in MD zone 7a - but these popped up this spring and they all bloomed and were beautiful.

I've read that these are loved by deer though - I have never had any issues with deer although I know they are in the area. So far they haven't come for these.

Latin Name Pronunciation: air-ith-roe'-nee-um

Size: 8-9 cm 

Plant immediately upon receipt, as bulbs dry out quickly. Plant 3″ deep, 4–5″ apart (5–6 per sq ft).

Plants prefer humus-rich soil in a partly shaded woodland site. On arrival, bulbs may appear spongy and somewhat discolored. This is normal and does not mean the bulbs are not viable. Only if they are powdery dry are they not worth planting.
