Erythronium umbilicatum


A great naturaliser, umbilicatum has small yellow flowers that have a brown stripe on the outside of the petals.

SKU: E5090 Categories: ,


Erythronium umbilicatum is excellent for naturalising and grows well in woodland shade.  We sell a lot of these as they are quite superb, as not only are they dwarf but they also naturalise really well.

It is a very beautiful, eye-catching erythronium with deep golden-yellow flowers with a brown stripe on the outside of the petals and attractively marbled leaves.

Cultivation Instructions

Cultivate soils to a depth of 4-5″ (10-12cm) then add humus and grit to ensure good drainage.  Plant bulbs 2-3″ (6-9cm) deep and water in well.

Enhance the soil with a light covering of leaf mulch or similar. During the first 6 months make sure that the soil does not dry out. However be careful not to overwater. After this time they can be left alone to naturalise.

Aspect: Woodland type areas and plant immediately on arrival in well drained soil. Enhance the nutrient content of the soil by adding bonemeal.

Soil type: Plant 5-7cms deep.
