Some say it’s the mottled leaves resembling a fawn’s spotted back that evoke the common name, others think its the delicate thin stems and graceful flowers conjuring a young deer’s light-on-its-feet stance. Either way this demure Pacific northwest native is sure to please.

A lustrous base of broad, ripple-edged green and brown foliage stage numerous, nodding decorative “lanterns” on tall stems. Warmed by butter yellow centers, the elegant blooms spotlight creamy alabaster-colored petals whose slender, pointed tips curve back.

A vigorous, undemanding woodland bulb for carpeting the ground beneath a native shrub such as Ribes, the White Fawn Lily appreciates a deep planting in well drained soil and dry conditions once the clump disappears in June.

Size: 8" high x 10" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered a few things and had a pleasant experience. Email communication was prompt. The plants themselves arrived swiftly, were very well packed and were very large and had impressively healthy root systems. I would definitely order from them again.”
