Erythronium albidum Ann Arbor Natural Area Preservation

Rich deciduous forests, especially in moist areas and along floodplains, sometimes with E. americanum, but much more local, even in the southern part of the state. Northward, known only along the Sturgeon River in Houghton Co. and the Ontonagon River in Ontonagon Co.

The stigmas are spreading or recurved and short, but tend to be slightly longer and more distinctly separated than E. americanum. This species appears to bloom slightly earlier than E. americanum where they grow together.
