Painted Trillium: A native woodland species from across Appalachia, painted trillium takes its name from the three-petaled flowers it bears. TN Nursery offers several trillium plants. But the painted trillium (Trillium undulatum) is, without a doubt, a customer favorite.
As a woodland native perennial, painted trillium prefers a place of honor in a shaded or partially shaded area of your yard.
Painted Trillium Bold Appearance
Painted trillium grows in small clumps. The leaves and flowers emerge from an eight- to eighteen-inch rich green stem with a slight curve. The blue-green leaves form broad ovals that measure as much as five inches long.
The flowers, however, are the crowning glory. Each flower displays three triangular petals in white with a tinge of cream, pink, or lavender around wavy and ruffled edges. Here's why the word "painted" is in the flower's name--each petal has markings in magenta to bright red near the center of the flower. They appear as though someone brushed each marking in a v-shaped pattern by hand.
These lovely flowers have a sweet floral fragrance that does not overpower the senses.
Painted Trillium Is Easy to Grow
Painted trillium will be easy to care for if you pick a shady location and amend the soil. In its native settings, it likes lots of woody, organic matter; you can give it peat moss, mulch, or homemade compost in the spring and fall to adapt it as a backyard plant.
It likes moisture, but it does not prefer wet feet. It can withstand the hottest summer days, but you'll need to water it if you notice it drooping in the heat.
Other than adding organic material a couple of times yearly and watering it during the heat, you will find Trillium undulatum an unfussy addition to your shade garden or border garden.

Hello folks. Yes, the painted trllium (5) arrived just fine, but I also ordered (15) regular trllium and have not received them yet. Are they on their way? Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely, Mary Sullivan
Received and planted these trilliums 2 weeks ago. They’re sprouting. In about a year I’ll be able to tell you more.
