Trout lilies or fawn lilies in the USA, where most of the species hail from. We grow European and Asian species, plus a wide range of cultivars and hybrids. They are superb plants for light shade in a humus enriched soil.
Normally available from very late summer to late Autumn. They have no tunics on their bulbs and thus they are very susceptible to drying, if bought from garden centres. Ours are sent out (only) when dormant, packed in polythene and damp peat. We find that they travel very happily packed like this and they can be safely sent out until at least late October. BUT we need to know that you want them as early as possible as we start to replant our stocks in September.
They should be planted at once upon arrival. After planting leave alone and lift only every 3-4 years, during dormancy, to split them apart as they dislike disturbance.
Order from Autumn list only.
