“Trout Lily, a Nodding Spring Ephemeral”


Trout lilies are another spring woodland ephemeral, popping up after a long, dreary winter. The name comes from their mottled tulip-like leaves that look like trout. They form colonies and spread over a long period of time and can take years to flower. A single bloom can last only a few days, and the plants go dormant by mid-summer.

Trout lilies grow well in low-temperature soils and help take up nutrients that are otherwise washed away in early spring rains. Once summer rolls around, they release these nutrients back into the soil for other plants to use. They are known to have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, lymphatic, wound healing and nervine properties.

Framed Size: 19x25x2(inches)

We offer hand made custom frames constructed from natural wood of your choice. Click on the photos below to open and preview the frame options.

All orders will be shipped in 3-10 business days via USPS Priority mail, UPS or FedEx, depending on the size of the item and whether framing was desired. For medium to larger works, and if crating is needed to safely ship, it will be UPS or FedEX. USPS can ship larger works but it is a lot more expensive!

If I anticipate framing will take longer for any reason, I will reach out and let you know! You will receive a tracking number via email once the work has shipped.

If you are in the Fargo-Moorhead area and wish to pick it up, please select STUDIOPICKUP at checkout. I will have a table in the front lobby with your piece labeled for pick-up between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM. I will always try to say hello if I am in the studio!
