It does not seem to be available; but, /www.phoenixperennials.com has E. californicum 'White Beauty' for sale.  Plant World Seeds sells E. oregonum seed.

Pollen from oregonum to 'White Beauty' will give you 'Minehaha'

The correct spelling is 'Minnehaha' - it's a tricky one!  Seed of this erythronium is sometimes available from the  members' seed exchanges such as Hardy Plant Society.
 The seedlings are similar to the parent plant but are not strictly Minnehaha in that case.

Maggi,

Thanks for catching my typo. Spelling was not the problem.  The problem is that I'm as clumsy as a bow-legged elephant; and that is not very compatible with a computer keyboard... even if it is full size!

A 'bow-legged elephant' eh?  I had no idea you'd seen photos of me!! :o ::) :P :D ;D ;D

Have to admit, I'm the world's worst typist so finding typos can be a full time job for my own posts!
