Rhizomatnous, deciduous perennials. Upright or nodding, solitary of funnel-shaped flowers with 3 simple petals are held just above a whorl of 3 leaves. The numerous species are found in woodland habitats, flowering in spring before the deciduous leaves which remain green until fall.
Trillium albidum:
Native to western USA, this species has 8" leaves, grows to over 18" tall and is similar to Trillium chloropetalum. It's flowers are white flushed pink and are up to 4" long.
Zones 6-9
Cultivation:
Very frost hardy, they prefer a cool, moist soil with ample water and shade from the hot afternoon sun. Slow to propagate from seed in fall or by division in summer, they are long lived once established.
