Trout Lilies - #0707

trout lilies

Erythronium Americanum, erythronium is derived from a Greek word meaning “red”, referring to the reddish spots on the leaves. The meaning of Americanum is obvious. “Trout” refers to the plant’s mottled leaves resembling the coloring of a trout. Also called Fawn Lily because its leaves look like a spotted fawn.. It takes seven years of development before the plant bears its first blossom. The leaves are tasty when cooked and eaten with butter, and at one time the small bulbs were stored in root cellars to be used as winter food. Habitat: rich moist deciduous wooded areas.
