Trillium, or Wake Robbin, is a native woodland plant that grows naturally on rich, moist forest floors. It is a classic spring-blooming, woodland wildflower. All trilliums have three leaves per stem, and three petals per flower. The flowers are generally two to three inches across, but sometimes bigger. The petals are usually pointed, wavy-edged, and curved back at the tips. Dappled shade and humus-rich soil provide perfect growing conditions for trillium. Add them to an existing wooded area, create your own woodland garden, or plant a shade garden with wildflowers and ferns. They spread slowly as a clump and will become a naturalized groundcover. Soon after their enchanting flowers fade, the handsome foliage will disappear for the season as well. Do not cut the leaves back while they are green as they are needed for root establishment.

Trillium prefers well-drained acidic soils with average moisture and rich organic content. This soil occurs naturally where there is a lot of leaf litter. It needs regular watering. It is a rhizomatous plant that is difficult to propagate from seed, with no serious insect or disease problems. The flower does not transplant well and should not be dug in the wild.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root.
