Searching Genus for TRILLIUM
(WAKE ROBIN, WOOD LILIES)
This genus includes 30-50 species primarily distributed in Asia and North America. Mostly spring blooming and, with a few exceptions, deciduous woodland plants. They have underground rhizomes; some species develop a many-stemmed clump, others a dense colony. Whorls of foliage and solitary flowers in white, yellow, green, brown, rose or purple, occasionally bicoloured. After flowering, a fleshy berry is formed. Most species are long lived ornamentals. For optimum growth give them a deep, moist soil in bright, half or fully shaded conditions. They will, however grow in less than ideal conditions.

Native to the eastern USA growing on upland slopes and in woods. This is a beautiful sessile trillium. Mottled grey-green foliage and maroon flowers. Only a few packs. Order early.

TRILLIUM grandiflorum (Moist Packed)
White Wake Robin
The provincial flower of Ontario and native to eastern North America. This is perhaps the best of the genus and the most widely known Trillium. A gracious, easy to grow beauty with large white flowers, pink after pollination. According to Farrer: "A plant unsurpassable anywhere for heartiness of habit, charm of manner and refulgent purity of bloom." Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Please note that this is a limited-in-time listing as this species normally germinates in mid to late October the same year it was collected when the seed is immediately moist packed.
