I’m still learning my western North American Erythronium, and Diana
Chapman's remark about Erythronium multiscapoideum ‘Cliftoni’ brought back a
memory from last year. She wrote: “Most do have a pink flush to them,
especially in bud, some have it more than others”. 

When this plant bloomed here last year for the first time, I thought I was
about to see a pink-flowered Erythronium. Nice as it was when in full bloom,
I was a bit disappointed that my expectations were ill founded.
