    Full Bloom Double White Trillium is a pure white native treasure for the spring shade garden or ephemeral woodland. Add a note of elegance to the bright and beautiful early spring garden! Full Bloom Double White Trillium blooms slightly longer than single cultivars and is a rare sight - even in collectors’ gardens. Flowers glowing above the characteristic three-leafed stems will slowly fade to soft pink by mid-spring. In time, this rare rhizomatic perennial can spread and naturalize, to carpet your woodland or shade garden, and is seldom damaged by deer. (Trillium grandiflorum ‘Flore Pleno’)
