If you travel further north from Fife into Perth and Kinross you'll also find many different Erythronium's growing at Branklyn Garden. Here in the garden there are many different shades of pink including the darker flowering Erythronium revolutum 'Knightshayes Pink' and they happily self seed all around the garden.

They're also known here in the UK as Dog Tooth Violets and aptly given that name due to the bulb resembling a dogs tooth. While if you're from America you'll call them 'Mahogany Fawn Lily'.
