A small species with nodding flowers, we grow a mix of pink and the rarer alpine white forms, in general it is slow to clump up however I have seen large clumps in the case garden.

Trillium cuneatum 'Sessile of Hort.'

Trillium cuneatum 'Sessile of Hort.'

Toad Shade, I love the name; I just wish my toads would use them. Large mottled leaves with red flowers in the axil. Flowers are not as sweet as luteum but who cares, a must for every collection. Cuneatum has been widely sold under the name sessile for years.

Trillium erectum

Trillium erectum

A wide ranging eastern species typically with maroon red flowers on a stem above the leaves, it forms stunning hybrids with flexipes and indeed is so precocious with other plants in it's section that it can be hard to find a completely pure strain. According to Fred, red forms are more common at higher elevations.

Trillium erectum luteum

Trillium erectum luteum

A showy cream to yellow strain of Trillium erectum, generally with some hybrids mixed in. our plants are not pure although as the flower we do try to sort them out. Most are creamy with rich yellows showing up every now and then.

Trillium grandiflorum

Trillium grandiflorum

It's a weed here but a glorious one, the huge white flowers fade to pink as they age; good pink forms and doubles are legendary, At least some of the pinks seem to breed true from seed, doubles are another matter but they are starting to tissue culture some of them. I you wish to search for doubles look at the end of the season, the doubles tend to bloom later and hold their petals longer than the singles, making them stand out at a considerable distance.

Trillium luteum

Trillium luteum

A large yellow trillium similar to trillium cuneatum but with large sweet smelling yellow flowers sitting in the center of the mottled leaves, Luteum and cuneatum will hybridize and to confuse the matter further there are yellow forms of cuneatum and red forms of luteum. Luteum has a lemon scent, while cuneatum is more like Calycanthus, and some of the hybrids have a wonderful apple scent. It is restricted to a rather narrow range near the North Carolina Tennessee border but is very adaptable to gardens outside its range.

Trillium pusillum

Trillium pusillum

Flowers are a pure white ranging to showy pink, with very undulate margins on the petals. Much like a little miniature Trillium undulatum, which brings us to the name 'pusillum', meaning dwarf in this case. This Trillium is certainly dwarf, and attractively so. T. pusillum will begin flowering before most other Trilliums have begun to bloom in the garden. This is quite a rare species. So rare in the wild in fact, that it tends to form very isolated communities that develop markedly new features, evidenced by the many recognized varieties of T. pusillum. The taxonomy can get confusing, and is up to some interpretation. In spite of being rare in the wild and even more uncommon in cultivation, T. pusillum is a vigorous grower in the garden. It also seeds quite easily, and you can quickly raise new seedlings to maturity. It is a wonder that such an easy growing, yet rare Trillium has not made more of on impact in commercial propagation, but we are now proud to be offering our very own seed grown population for sale. That said, these are in very short supply this year. Being seed grown, we don't have an unlimited supply, so if you want some I'd recommend picking up some now that it's still early in the year and we haven't yet run out.

Trillium recurvatum

Trillium recurvatum

Small, maroon red, reflexed petals, a very unusual trillium, and almost impossible to misidentify, Prairie Trillium seems to prefer clay floodplain soils or rich woods over limestone. It is easy and long lived in the garden.

Add:

Trillium sulcatum

Trillium sulcatum

We are delighted to be able to offer some spectacular mixed color forms of sulcatum. These are some of the showiest trilliums we have ever grown (sulcatum from the type locality is a rather small flowered thing hardly worth growing)

Add:

Trillium vaseyi

Trillium vaseyi

These are nearly pure vaseyi although a bit of hybrid influence does creep in; the huge flowers are dark maroon purple and tend to be held beneath the large rhombic leaves.
