Erythronium Dens Canis Rose Queen
A superb, early flowering Dog’s Tooth Violet - ‘Dens Canis Rose Queen’ produces elegant, nodding blooms in a delicate shade of clear pink. The petals are speckled with yellow or brown markings towards the heart.
Long, purple-tipped anthers are suspended from the centre of each 2 in. bloom, attracting bees and early spring pollinators.
Stems are reddish umber, matching the mottled markings on wide, exotic-looking, green foliage which is held until summer.
Plant the bulbs in groups beneath deciduous trees and shrubs, or tuck into a shady, moist border where they will plug gaps and naturalise beautifully over the years.
