Overview
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’)

Description

(12-18” tall x 12-15” wide) Full Bloom Double White Trillium makes a precious pure white accent against the slowly greening earth of early spring. Stems emerge from rhizomes in early spring and unfurl three ovate leaves, blooming with one pure white ruffled petal for each stem. After blooming, the flowers fade to a light pink, and the entire plant dies back to the ground by mid-summer. Full Bloom Trillium, with sophisticated, fully double blooms, will last longer than single cultivars. Also known as ‘Flore Pleno,’ reproducing through spreading rhizomes. Trillium prefers the moist, rich, slightly acidic soil of woodlands and stream valleys in shady spots. Be sure to mark where you have planted them so you can add to your spring ephemeral display with other beauties such as Virginia bluebells or winter aconite – or indeed, even more trillium. A must have for the plant collector as well as gardeners putting together an exciting woodland garden.
