How to Grow Large Flowered Trillium

Large Flowered Trillium
Trillium grandiflorum against the north wall of the house. One root here has produced two shoots making me think I could dig it up and divide it but when I dug it up there was no obvious way to divide it.

This is a woodland plant native to the US Midwest and Northeast. It blooms around the end of April. Flowers fade to pink and after a while the leaves die back. Normally it is grown from roots, reportedly when grown from seed it takes many years (5?) to produce a plant strong enough to flower. When I first got plants from Jung only two of them came up. When I dug up the third I found it was in good shape and replanted it, it came up the following year as if nothing had happened.

If you have any questions or comments, write me.
