      Comments about Erythronium 'Pagoda':

      I've developed a bit of a passion for Erythronium since planting this one, and am now hunting for more varieties. Their nodding bright heads, and lush, but small foliage are an attractive addition to a shady or dappled light area. The one issue is slugs. Not quite to the Hosta level, but they do like the leaves. I started using Nematodes last year and they worked well, so have drenched the area again this year
