Erythronium Dens-canis - Hardy Perennial

Author: John Wood

Erythronium Dens-canis - Hardy Perennials and Old Fashioned Flowers

Erythronium Dens-canis Described.

Erythronium Dens-canis - Dog's-tooth Violet; Nat. Ord. Liliaceæ.

A hardy bulbous perennial. There are several varieties of this species, and all are very handsome.

The variety shown is the large white-flowering kind; others have yellow, pale purple, and lilac-coloured blooms. All are produced singly on stems 4in. or 5in. long, and gracefully bending. During bright weather the divisions of the lily-like flowers become reflexed and otherwise show themselves to advantage. Their foliage forms a rich setting for the flowers, being variously coloured with red, brown, and different shades of green, all charmingly blended or marbled. The leaves are broad and oval, and open out flatly, so that their beauties can be well seen; if they are grown amongst the very dwarf sedums or mosses, they look all the better and are preserved from splashes. Two leaves, one stem, one flower, and one bulb constitute a whole plant; both flowers and foliage remain in beauty for a long time.

Erythronium Dens-canis

I have them growing in various positions and soils, and I think they most enjoy a vegetable mould, with full exposure to the sun, but they should not lack moisture; they seem to increase more rapidly in peat than in any other compost. They should not be disturbed more than necessary, and when they are, autumn is the best time to transplant.

Flowering period, March and April.
