|The Erythroniums native to the Western U.S. are considered by many to be the most
beautiful of the genus. Often called "Fawn Lilies" because of the dappled coloring to the
leaves, they have dainty nodding flowers like small lilies, set off by large shining leaves
that are either plain green or marbled with silver and bronze. Most grow in shaded
woodland areas that go quite dry in summer, but with excellent drainage, they can tolerate
some summer water.
