Erythronium Dens Canis Lilac Wonder

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



A charming spring bloom which bears dainty, lilac-rose flowers with striking, chocolate-brown basal spots.  As the nodding blooms mature, their colourful petals fold back, exposing pollen-dusted anthers to bees and pollinators.

Attractive foliage is marbled green and purplish brown, appearing in clumps from which the delicate-looking, hardy blooms spring up during March and April.

Perfect for naturalising in shaded areas, nestled beneath trees and shrubs.  

Erythronium are better known as Dog’s Tooth Violets, for their bulbs resemble canine teeth.

‘Dens Canis Lilac Wonder’ is a recipient of the Award of Garden Merit from the RHS for its exquisite looks and excellent, perennial performance.
