Trillium

Wood Lily

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.

Its common name belies the simple elegance of this rarely offered Missouri woodlander. Three evenly spaced broad leaves forge a handsome platform for 2 in. high maroon blooms, which are mottled in shades of green, purple and white. Defined by 3 erect petals, the unique stalkless flowers gracefully embellish a clump-forming base, whose thick underground rhizomes will slowly colonize if left undisturbed.

Blooms April – May.

Size: 6"–12" high x 6"–12" wide; hardy to zone 4.

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!
