Product Description

Great White Trillium

Great white trillium (Trillium grandiflorum)is a flowering plant that is native to the eastern parts of North America, from Quebec in Canada all the way down to Georgia in the United States and grows as far west as Minnesota.

 Some of the more common names for the plant are white trillium, large-flowered trillium, white wake-robin, and trinity flower. It is a member of the lily family and grows best in shaded woodlands with fertile soil and fertile compost from the forest floor. This single white flower grows from a tall stem and is encased by three green leaves. The flower itself has three pristine white petals that will sometimes fade to a pale pink as it ages and is in bloom from late spring to early summer.The trillium is known as a spring ephemeral, which means that the life of the flower synchronizes with the woodlands in which it grows. 

With its large leaves, pretty blooms and its low maintenance needs, great white trillium is a favorite among the other varieties of trillium.

When appropriately tended, this lovely plant will keep flowering every year after it is planted. As it has larger petals than some similar flowers and is quite noticeable, this variety of trillium has been used as the provincial emblem of Ontario, Canada, and also has the distinction of being awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. It is easy to see why this wildflower is a perennial favorite among gardeners and conservationists alike.

    I ordered 10 Great White Trillium and all were putting out leaves from big healthy rhizomes. I can't wait to see a bloom on one of them. Thank you Rachel Gragf

    The white trillium rhizomes were very fresh and vital. All five put up leaves within a week or so and two then flowered. I couldn’t be happier with the quality and service! Thank you Native Wildflowers!

    Looked healthy

    May 01, 2020 Reviewer: Lindsay B

    I received one bulb (I purchased only one so that was expected), bare root, shipped in a ziploc bag in a box. The bulb looked very healthy and was planted the day of arrival. I doubt it will come up this year considering most trillium in my area have already bloomed (around 4/25/20), but hopefully I will see it next year! I'm very happy with my purchase.
