Erythronium (Dens Canis)
Commonly known as: Dog Tooth Violet. Soft pink, almost Cyclamen-like blooms that are produced in the spring. The foliage is mottled, the blooms unusual and appealing and this plant is ideal for naturalising.
The white bulb is oblong and resembles a dog's tooth, hence the common name "dog's tooth violet" and the Latin specific epithet dens-canis, which translates as "dog's tooth"
