Erythronium dens-canis 'White Splendour'

Erythronium dens-canis 'White Splendour'

I did another day of weeding and clearing today and it's lovely to see all sorts of things popping up around the garden.

In the new borders that I planted last year (the ex-Rose Garden), most of the plants were grown from seed. As they were all done last year, I am not really familiar with them yet. The result is that weeding those beds is like a magical mystery tour - wondering what this or that is! Going to check out my database now that I'm back indoors :)

I've added a few photos to my February album, which yo might like to check out.

Well done Rachel. You are keeping your garden clear.

Mine are only showing through now, but not getting sun yet, where they are so that would keep them back I'm sure.

I think this dens-canis type is quite early. It is a miniature one but I bought it for the foliage. I am looking forward to a nice display this year as all three bulbs have more than one flower each.

Liga, did you buy the same one? From Augis?
