Trout Lily 3 For $12.99 Description

Trout Lily 

Yellow Trout lily, or the Erythronium americanuma, as it is called botanically, is a native North American woodland plant.

It's a sporadic, ephemeral bloomer, showing yellow flowers in the spring. Trout Lily has mottled foliage resembling a brook trout's markings, giving this plant its common name. Trout Lily is an attractive seasonal groundcover long-lasting and spreads into large colonies over time. The curved, elongated shape of the Trout Lily corms gives this plant its other common name of dogtooth violet. Trout Lily is a terrific choice as an ornamental in your garden landscape.

Trout lily care and maintenance

Trout Lily is best planted from corms in the late summer or seeds in late spring to early summer. A slow-growing plant's root divisions may not flower until its second year. Seedlings may take up to five or six years before they flower. The elongated corms of the Trout Lily lack a hard outer skin. Plant your Trout Lily corms as soon as you buy them or divide existing plants to prevent them from becoming dried out. 

Planting Trout Lily in an east-facing location with morning sun is ideal. In the wild, Trout Lily grows underneath deciduous trees such as oaks and maples, offering dappled sunlight, which is best for these plants. During the summer, protect your Trout Lily plants from the hot midday and afternoon sun.


Trout Lily plants need at least 1 inch of water per week during their spring growing period from rain or irrigation. However, after your Trout Lily has gone dormant in the summer, it requires drier conditions, so no watering is needed.


When weeding your Trout Lily, ensure not to damage any new corms that develop since these are the source of new plants.  Trout Lily plants are attractive to ants that help to naturalize the plant and spread seed. After its foliage dies in the summer, leave it around your Trout Lily plant as mulch all through the winter. Trout Lily is a lovely compliment to your home garden landscape.

    I didn't realize the true beauty that I would experience with these lilies. I will have to resubmit a order for more, so that I can enjoy them next season.
