Erythronium grandiflorum

An early blooming, native wildflower for the Intermountain West!

Glacier Lilies first bloom in spring just after the snow melts. They are a very short, nodding flower, growing to a height of 6-15”. They prefer fertile and moist soils, high elevation, and shady areas. Glacier lily corms overwinter 5-7” underground, and they are an important food source for grizzly bears, deer, elk, and bighorn sheep.
