Erythronium Plant Care

Plant 2-4" apart and 4" deep. Erythronium Pagoda prefers moist, well-drained soil. Fabulous for sun-dappled gardens. ‘Pagoda’ trout lily is a nice addition to moist woodland gardens, shady rock gardens, and mixed beds. It does best in rich, moisture retentive soil, and needs moist soil even when dormant.
