BE SURE TO TEST ONLY A LITTLE FIRST AS THESE “CAN BE” AN EMETIC!!! THEN ONLY IN SMALL QUANTITIES.
Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum) grows in huge colonies that can completely cover a forest floor (for more info see the link below).
This edible plant is a beautiful spring ephemeral, meaning it is short-lived in the spring only.
Be sure to use the Latin (or botanical) name when researching this plant as some of the other common names may also pertain to similar plants that may NOT be edible!
