Trillium simile or flexipes

JEWELED OR NODDING TRILLIUM

We're not quite sure whether these are T. simile or T. flexipes. Over the years they've been identified by different people as one or the other. Over the years we've always had them mixed together, so it is possible that you will get one, the other or a hybrid of them both. But they are both so similar we feel it is OK to sell them together. T. simile, as its name suggests looks similar to both T. erectum var. album and T. flexipes. It has a large creamy white flower with a dark purple ovary. Trillium flexipes, on the other hand, has a white or pink ovary, but has the same cream colored flowers. The parent plants of these seedlings are 20 in. tall with a leaf span of 12 to14 in.

We are offering 6-year-old Large blooming-sized bare root plants.  Please note that about 5% of these are turning out to be some sort of hybrid with very nice deep purple flowers instead of white.

Zones 4-8. 7-20 in. Full/dappled shade; moist, humus-rich, soil.
