    The native European one is my favourite

    Erythronium dens canis  

    Then there's the variety 'snowflake'

    And the subspecies 'nivea''

    All 3 are worth waiting for in the spring.

    I keep meaning to get some for my shady areas. They're great plant for our conditions up here. 

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    I grow it successfully in clay soil in a shady place, but the soil is damp.

    Love them, but don't tell the slugs and snails you're getting some - they'll throw a party image
