Yellow Trout Lily

Trout Lily

Radnor Reflections, March 30, 2011

I love to look through the plant identification book for flowers that may be found, unequivocally! This is a yellow trout lily, Erythronium americanum. Sometimes, I even have to resort to the book whose pictures of flowers are all in black and white. I can’t imagine who thought that was a good idea.  Anyway, yellow trout lily. That’s the Radnor flower for today.

  2. Your picture of this trout lily is spectacular! It is inspiring me to sketch it in my diary. I just bought my first home last year in June and this year I was surprised to see the yard spread by a large, large patch of these mottled “trout” leaves. But anyways, you have a lovely picture of a trout lily.
