Trillium grandiflorum

Common name: White Wake-robin

Native plant

Trillium grandiflorum may be the most engaging and beautiful of the spring woodland flowers. The striking white almost glows when seen from a distance. Unfortunately, it has a short bloom time of about two weeks and then, like most of our woodland spring flowers, it starts to melt away and will usually be gone by summer. White wake-robin is a beautiful plant, but it is NOT a plant for every yard or garden. It needs to be protected by high canopy trees and richer woodland soils. If you are in a former cornfield, it will likely be a costly one-time planting. 

Available in quarts.  Call for info.
