Erythronium albidum?
« on: May 21, 2023, 05:36:15 PM »
Is this Erythronium albidum, or something else? I'm guessing it's an east-coast species, something I grew 25+ years ago  that decided to stick around...

For me it is not albidum. I have added a picture, the leaves of albidum are narrower.

Very spotty leaves - could be E. albidum.   :-\

I can't even remember growing it, but for some reason both it and Achlys triphylla not only survived but seem intent on colonizing my parents' backyard/woodland... Will move a piece and key it next spring.

Happy colonisers indeed - nice to see garden plants making themselves at home in the garden  !
