All the recent posts about white-flowered Erythronium dens-canis have got me thinking about the local white-flowered Erythronium. Can anyone tell me if Erythronium americanum has white-flowered forms? I know of two local populations of E. americanum among which grow plants with white flowers. The white-flowered plants produce flowers which are comparatively wimpy and have distinctly bluish leaves. In the location I've seen most often, the white-flowered plants are almost certainly a clone: they grow in a big patch (of foliage, not flowers!) about a yard or two across. It seems very unlikely to me that these are E. albidum, although everyone I've ever asked uses that name for them. Any thoughts?
