Dog's tooth lily


I'm not sure about the English name of this lily.
In both Swedish and Finnish the name
translates to dog's tooth lily.

Thank you, Tom, for giving me the correct
name of this lily: dog tooth violet.

I'm linking to Friday Greens.

  10. I think it's known by both names in England Gunilla.Also i believe it can be used as a root vegetable! Think I will stick to spuds though.
