ReviewsNothing says Spring like Trillium. Been looking for Trillium roots for some time. Actually went to site to find VA. Bluebells. Then I saw them. Trillium! And very reasonably priced. Of course I ordered. Roots arrived when they said they would. They were nice size, fleshy roots. I received not only my order, but also a couple of "rootlets". They are now planted and Im in anxious anticipation. So happy to have found NATIVE WILDFLOWERS.nicole
