18/03/19 - Star Plant Update - the dog tooth violets are coming back 💜 this one has heavy mottled foliage too 👌🏼. Two flowers in this small clump this year, although you can’t see in the photo as it’s directly behind the other one. I planted these in the same bed as the snowdrops 😊 #snowdropbed #erythronium-denscanis #erythronium #erythroniumdenscanislilacwonder #dogtoothviolet

Are these difficult to grow? I bought one bulb from the Xmas market, of all places 😁

Hey Urszula @ublaszko 👋🏼😀 - hope your well, sorry been absent and silent for a while as study is quite intense at mo. Have first exams in Feb and already panicking - it’s been 20 years since i last did exams 😳 - anyways, in answer to your question, very easy I found. They are easily unnoticeable so had to remind myself often that I planted it. Hoping it multiplies well. Just needs a nice loamy/leaf mouldy soil and it will be happy 😊

It's been a while since I last did exams 😅 Good luck! 👍 My erythronium is in a pot so I can grow it in a shade border. Really hoping it flowers so I can decided whether to buy more next year 😊

Dog tooth violets are coming through! 😊 first time I’ve tried these, so wasn’t sure if I planted them correctly #erythronium #dogtoothviolet #erythronium-denscanis

I planted some last fall too. Glad you posted this photo so I know what to watch for (can't exactly remember where I planted them)!

Me too Katy - been checking every few days to see what they would look like. They had come up much more since with spotty leaves but now covered in snow again 🙄. Hope you see yours soon @gjones
