Thanks Diane, I'll try some in a damper spot then. This area does dry out quite easily.

Herman, thanks

This one must be Purple King, the other two pinks in my last post must be Frans Hals. Thought I was taking pictures of two different plants.

Last picture, unknown as of yet. Years ago I purchased seed of the more rare species Erythronium. This will be my first from seed to flower.

It's more or less peak Erythronium season here:

687793-0

'Kinfauns Sunrise' is a Pitcairn Nursery hybrid.



'Joanna' is super and very vigorous.



'Sundisc' is the good-looking sibling of the better-known 'Pagoda'. The flowers are brighter yellow and the leaves better marked, so it is well worth seeking out.



E. hendersonii is still in flower, though looking a bit battered now. We had some windy conditions but I think we avoided the worst of the weather that hit Ian in Scotland.

687801-4

'Kinfauns Pink', another Pitcairn hybrid. This is a bit pale for my taste if I'm honest.

Now here are a few Erythroniums from Aberconwy Nursery. They have been breeding quite a few of late:

687803-0

'Bryn Meifod'.



Aberconwy Chocolate group

687807-2

Aberconwy Marbled group

687809-3

A selection from the Aberconwy Marbled group, as yet un-named, with particularly good leaves.

Nice selection Tristan. Shows the difference a couple of hundred miles makes, mine are just about going over now. I haven't been able to posted any pictures of this years crop.

Thanks David.

My mother lives in Devon and she is always a good 2-3 weeks ahead of us too. I love to visit the collection at Garden House when I get the chance. Think I may also try to extend the season by planting some bulbs in shadier spots.

Every year I make crosses, with different Erythronium that are open at the time.

First seedling to flower. Thinking Hendersonii x Revolutum or Oregonum?
Suppose to be in mid 20's Wed night, maybe later in the week it will open all the way.

Tristan and Guff, really beautiful clumps of Erythroniums!
Here they are now peaking from the ground,also the ones planted last summer are coming up well:),  and I see also first buds in two plants sown in 2015.
This year I think there will be more of my own fresh seeds to sow for the future.
