White flowers, ageing to palest pink, have recurved tepals which face the ground so that their points face upward, both the flower and the throat being enhanced with strong orange to brown marks. It has a striking resemblance to Erythronium revolutum, with widely split, recurving style branches, which are unique to these two, and it is quite as attractive and desirable as that fabulous species. The large, heavily mottled leaves are lightly bronzed.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
