Care Instructions

Requires a good, moist but well-drained soil in semi-shade or deep shade and benefits from plenty of added leaf mould. It can be slow to establish and is best left undisturbed to gradually build up a good clump. Not for impatient gardeners. This is a relatively easy Trillium to grow. 

Plant No: 2977
