Red Trillium - TN Nursery

Red Trillium

Red Trillium is a highly fragrant woody perennial plant with three maroon or deep scarlet petals typically found in eastern North America. Its appearance adds a splash of color to forest floors in the spring. This captivating perennial plant is native to North America and offers many benefits when incorporated into landscaping designs.   It is a short, flowering plant that is an attractive addition to any landscape. It features broad clusters of leaves, small flowers, and several narrow stalks that fan out from a central root system. It can get up to a foot tall and 18 inches wide. This petite plant is a charming flower to feature in flower beds or decorative borders. The appealing texture of its leaves creates a pleasant backdrop for other small flowers, or landscapers can use thick clusters of this plant to fill in space between larger shrubs. The Gorgeous Leaves of Red Trillium Each leaf can reach around six inches in width. They have a teardrop shape, broad, rounded base, and delicately pointed tip. Leaves are usually a medium kelly green with hints of olive or yellow. Pronounced veins run along the entire leaf, giving your garden plenty of texture. This plant's attractive leaves grow in groups of three. Each upright stalk has three leaves that stretch out horizontally from the center. Red Trillium Has a Long Blooming Season Red Trillium has gorgeous flowers that appear each spring. The dark, burgundy flowers have three long, teardrop-shaped petals surrounding a cluster of white stamens in the center. Each flower is backed by three decorative bracts that peek out between each petal. These specialized leaves are typically olive green with a thin line of burgundy around their edge. Usually, one flower appears on each plant stalk, so the typical cluster of leaves can have around three to eight flowers. Red Trillium Bloom Time The flowers of Red Trillium start appearing in March and can last until June so that gardeners can enjoy the lovely blossoms for months. Once the flowers fall off the plant, trim, reddish fruit begins to grow in their place. These glossy orbs continue to add visual interest to the plant throughout the summer. As temperatures drop, leaves turn a pleasant yellow shade. They then go dormant over winter before sending out fresh, green shoots again in the early spring.
