Trilliums are an easily recognized spring wildflower. While not illegal to pick, you should always buy from a responsibly grown native plant nursery to preserve wild populations.
Habitat: Rich, deciduous woods. Grows best in moist, well drained soil in shady areas. Benefits from a layer of leaf litter.
Blooms: White flowers in early spring
Height: 12-15 in
Light: Shade to part shade
Moisture: Moist but not wet
Soil: Hummus rich, sandy loam
Companions: Does well with other woodland plants such as Solomons Seal or Large Flowered Bellwort. Leaves will die back so plant it with a companion that can fill in the gap such as sedges.
Propagation: Plant seeds immediately after ripening. Divide rhizomes in spring/fall.
Wildlife Value: Early food source for native pollinators such as flies and beetles.
