I received this morning a paper copy of the RV Roger bulb catalogue (also available www.rvroger.co.uk. RV Roger holds the UK National collection of Erythroniums and I was surprised at the cost per bulb of some of the varieties for sale:

Eryhronium helenae - 12.50 each
Erythronium oregonum leucandrum  - 14.70 each
Erythronium dens-canis montenegrum - 24.35 each
and, wait for it,
Erythronium caucasicum 'Krasnodar' - 32 each
Erythronium sibericum 'Gornaya Shoria'- 35 each

Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.

Not too surprising from this source.
Try Pitcairn Alpines:
Erythronium helenae - 6.50 each
Erythronium oregonum leucandrum  - 5.00 each

Steven,  as I know it, the cultivar was raised by a Dutch nurseryman and named for Joanna,  the younger daughter of Jacques Amand. It is E.  tuolumnese x revolutum

Here are my Erythronium 'Padoga' last May. I planted three bulbs in the autumn 2009 and they have grown well. Are they too crowded and should I divide them next year?

Maggi, thank you for the articles, what a wonderful surprise when I opened the computer. :) 
Happy to help, Leena!



Leena, nice clump of Erythronium 'PAGODA' ( note spelling ;) )

Yes, after they die back next year, (summer) I would lift them and split them.
Depending on what kind of soil you have, the bulbs  may have got themselves down quite deep, deeper than you expect - so take great care when digging to go down far enough before you try to lift them, or you may break them.
 I think you will be pleasantly surprised to see how many bulbs you will have - you will be able to make five new plantings, I think.  :D

Thanks for the correction of the spelling.  :)
Five new plantings sound great, and then I could try it also in different beds to see how it likes other places in my garden.
I suppose 'PADOGA' is one of the easiest, but I hope other Erythroniums like it here, too.
