Could anyone out there please identify ths plant, thanks.




It is looking healthy, Pat, sure I have seen one before but cannot for the life of me recall its name. Welcome to GoY, and rest assured someone will be along soon who will be more helpful.

We have a wildflower here in Canada that is remarkably similar, with the mottled leaves. It is called Trout Lily or Adders Tongue (Erythronium americanum) but I don't know if the species is in the U.K. Hope I'm not leading you astray, but I'm sure someone will know for certain.!

Erythronium it is. Readily available in the Uk. Most likely this is one called Pagoda.
