Trilliums are a common wildflower in the north county, usually in scattered colonies but occasionally covering large areas of the forest floor. Trilliums demand moist, very humus rich soil in wooded areas. Best areas recieve full sun until tree leaves fill out, stay moist but are never saturated.
Garden varieties are available and they require the same growing conditions. Cutting the flowers is detrimental to the plants and cut flowers wilt rapidly anyway. These plants emerge from deep roots and the stems are very fragile so transplanting is difficult at best.
