No woodland garden is complete without this simple, graceful perennial - one of the most beloved of the woodland wildflowers in eastern North America. Large Flowered Trillium is an easy plant to grow, but difficult to propagate from seed. It will return faithfully year after year in optimal conditions, and spread gradually by seed if left undisturbed. The flowers become pink-tinted later in the season, and finally give way to berry-like capsules. The foliage of this ephemeral will die-back to the ground by midsummer. White-Tailed Deer will eat the foliage and flowers. Trillium Grandiflorum may be especially popular with deer because of its large, highly visible bloom.
Other names include White Trillium and White Wakerobin
Planting Tips: We recommend planting ephemerals in early fall while the soil is still warm, or in early spring. Spring installations will have some time to develop before summer dormancy, but will not produce flowers the first year. An early fall planting allows the roots time to establish properly before winter, and gives the plants a stronger start the following spring. This woodland species appreciates a generous application of leaf mulch in the fall.
