Yellow Wake Robin
A sure sign that spring has settled in, these demure treasures are at home in cool woodland settings. Soon after their enchanting flowers fade, the handsome foliage disappears as well. Trilliums are long-lived, prefer humus-rich soil with ample moisture, and make admirable companions for Asarum, Toad Lilies, and ferns.
The broad foliage of this species is marbled with light green and yellow, echoing the colors of the showy flower. Ours is planted under a Myrica californica with Helleborus
x hybridus and Asarum caudatum.
Blooms April–early June.
Size: 12" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Trillium luteum (P-0559)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
