Erythronium dens-canis 'Purple King'

Erythronium dens-canis 'Purple King'

We love how wooded sites, rock gardens and other rugged, often-neglected sites come alive with beautiful soft color and tons of textural interest thanks to this unique bulb plant. Purple King erythronium dens-canis, also known as Dog's Tooth Violet, bears petite, pale purple flowers with mustard yellow centers. The exotic-looking blooms sit amid glossy, bronze-speckled foliage that creates a highly attractive backdrop. Purple King makes a striking addition to sun-dappled borders, along shady tree lines or between evergreen shrubs during the spring season. This carefree bulb plant is easy to grow, naturalizes beautifully and is not bothered by hungry deer. Plant in part shade in well-drained soil.
  • Hardiness Zones 3-9
  • Mature Height 4 - 6 inches
  • Bloom Time Early to mid spring (April)
  • Light Requirements Half Sun / Half Shade
  • Deer Resistant
