When you mention White Beauty I remember that I have planted some of that cultivar but this species has always been small flowered. Maybe it is competition from the peony.

Erythronium 'Pagoda'...the most carefree and rapidly clumping trout lily I grow.

My 'Pagoda' never clumps like that!

Your unknown Erythronium looks a lot like a young Erythronium oregonum even with how long the stamens are and with the markings inside the flower. I don't pay attention to the size of the flower for a few years as my Erythronium seedlings generally have smaller flowers for the first and sometimes second year they flower from seed. E. oregonum and californicum cross in the wild easy so there are variants and they become very hard to distinguish another problem I find is suppliers of the bulbs interchange the name on the two plants depending on the nursery.

Albany, Oregon USA. Pacific Northwest, elevation approximately 200ft zone 8. Winter wet and Summer Dry. Hot enough to ripen the peaches.

The color of the unknown species is not red! Take a look: Californicum?

Can't believe I missed this all those months ago!

It's a californicum, it was just kidding us with that pink bud!

My slugs devouring all the nicest plants let the Erythroniums alone. I have some plants but try to increase the stock every year. This one is started from seed - should be E. sibiricum. Maybe it is correct - a white flowered selection?

White sibericum do exist, they are very lovely. See Ian Young's Bulb Logs for pix. http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/index.php?log=bulb

That plant is not a sibericum... I'd think it's an E. oregonum.

Edit: as it happens, Ian has just loaded this week's Bulb Log Diary to the SRGC site and it  contains quite a lot of Erythronium photos, particularly E. sibericum... and the white form, known as E. sibericum subsp. altaicum....

Thank you all for contributing to name my Erythroniums :) (Now I know where to look if I loose the names later ;D)
Maggi, do all those Erythroniums flower now concurrently in your garden? What a sight it must be!

Seems that both of you make good jobs anyway ;D
I plant my plants and wish them good luck, but you tend them, I am sure!
