Catesby’s Trillium

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.

Trillium catesbaei partial shade  shade lover

This seldom offered woodland beauty grows wild throughout the southeastern regions of our country in dry oak and pine woodlands. Borne singularly atop an erect stem, each dainty nodding 1 ½ in. bloom features three unique sickle-shaped petals flushed with soft pink to darker rosy hues, punctuated by prominent golden yellow anthers, twisting in an irregular outward fashion. A purple-tinged green stem supports three handsome green whorled leaves, which don lustrous surfaces and upright elliptical outlines sharply tapering to pointed tips

Blooms April–May

Size: 12"–18" high x 10"–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!
