General Characteristics: This is the quintessential native woodland plant. 'Snowy White' promises a sparkling display of three-petaled flowers. Snowy or Snow Trillium (T. grandiflorum) is also called White Wake-robin, Grand Trillium, Great Flowered Trillium, Large-flowered Wake-robin, or Wood Lily. The flowers are generally two to three inches across, but sometimes bigger. The petals are usually pointed but occasionally rather rounded. Wavy-edged curved back at the tips and blushing a rosy hue as they wane, the regal blooms garnish attractive green foliage that easily carpets a cool, shady spot.
All trilliums have three leaves per stem, & three petals per flower. Leaves have the same variation though most commonly pointed. A classic spring-blooming, woodland wildflower. Excellent when massed in a shaded woodland garden, naturalized area or wildflower garden. Mixes well with other spring wildflowers and ferns. Not recommended for the perennial border.
