Trillium Nivale - Snow Trillium
Winking and twinkling through woodlands in late winter and early spring, Trillium nivale is considered a significant herald of the season. Otherwise known as snow trillium, this tiny member of the lily family, thrives best when planted in areas providing filtered sunlight and relatively dry soil that's rich in organic matter. As its name implies, snow trillium often blooms when the last snowfalls of winter are still on the ground.
Although snow trillium is quite resilient once it gets established, it's not an ideal plant for high-traffic areas.
Snow trillium self-colonizes using a network of underground rhizomes when conditions are right, which makes it suitable for planting in areas where a natural look is desired.
Homeowners often use it around the edges of their property where they wish to create a woodland effect, along with the sides of garden pathways, and in semi-shaded rock gardens. Although this little charmer isn't customarily bothered by insect pests, snow trillium requires at least minimal protection from deer.
A single bloom 1 to 2 inches crosswise over on a green to rosy stalk at the highest point of the plant. Blooms have three flaring white petals, by and large oval to circular with an obtuse tip, exchanging with three thin green sepals that are shorter than the leaves and twist back somewhat. The edges of the petals are regularly a touch wavy. In the middle are six yellow stamens and a white 3-separated style with twisted tips. Flowering plants have a single whorl of 3 leaves at the highest point of the stem, just underneath the bloom. Surrenders are over to 2 crawls in length, 1¼ creeps full, for the most part, oval to egg-formed with an obtuse tip and a short leaf stalk. Leaves have 3 or 5 distinct parallel veins and are somewhat blue to dark green. Stems are green to rosy. Leaves and stems are bare.
