Trout Lily (Dog's Tooth Violet, Fawn Lily, Adder's-tongue) (Erythronium Liliaceae americanum)

The trout lily needs rich soils thus will not be found just anywhere in Nova Scotia. Try in and around the Minis Basin: Kings, Hants and Colchester counties. The mature plant can run up to ten inches tall. A pair of leaves (mottled in brown) sheath a single stock on the top of which is a single flower (typical lily look), yellow to the inside and bronzy to the outside. It is an early bloomer and will not be seen much beyond May.
