Erythronium tuolumnense

I have a couple of clones of the above growing here, on a slope in light woodland conditions which remain a little moist throughout the summer. I find it to be not particularly rewarding, in the main because it is very shy flowering. It is also one of the first erythroniums above ground in the spring, after E. caucasicum, andis often frosted, to a greater or lesser degree. A couple of years ago the two flower stems it had deigned to produce were both frosted off, and the leaves took quite a hit as well. I does build up OK, and I'm hoping for a bumper display one year when all is to its liking and it is spared by the frost
