    My purchase of painted trillium in the fall of 2017 showed no signs of life the following spring. When I called to claim a refund, I was asked to give the plants another year. Sensing that I may have been hustled I waited. Today on April 19, 2019, my plants have pushed their leaves out of the ground. There will be another order for additional plants placed this fall.

    Beautiful bare root plants! The Painted Trillium is the single most protected flower in the State of Michigan so I am very excited to grow these. I do believe they came a little early, there was still snow in Michigan, so I am holding them a couple of weeks in the refrigerator.

    Love the small white flowers. They have a hint of purple in the center to bring them to life.

Painted Trillium- Trillium undulatum For Sale Affordable, Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Painted trillium is an herbaceous, woodland, perennial wildflower that grows widely across the US. Trillium undulatum also known as the painted trillium is a member of the plant family Trilliaceae. It is classified as a perennial plant which means that the plant itself remains in the ground year after year. 

Trillium undulatum usually blooms in the springtime around April to May; its colors commonly contain shades of white and shades of red. The painted trillium requires a moderate amount of water in its soil to keep itself sufficiently hydrated. The plant itself does not look super crazy, but that is its beauty. It is a simple whorled structure that has 3 or so leaves along that stem that lead up to the white and red flower. It is a smaller plant with a flower size of 2 to 2.5 inches long. The painted trillium makes a beautiful and manageable addition to any garden. The plants are reasonably compact and sport a dark green foliage with bright white flowers accented with pink or purple in the middle. Their size and mostly neutral color scheme mean that they will fit among and blend well with most any plant in your garden,

Once in bloom, the flowers remain for up to three weeks. During this time, the pink or purple accents on the flowers grow to replace most of the white coloring. So, the flowers can provide a different color scheme to your garden at different points in their bloom. Luckily, they are also incredibly easy to cultivate and grow with no high maintenance care required!If you are looking for an easy to manage plant with beautiful perennial blooms that change color over time, painted trilliums may be what you are looking for .

Affordable Painted Trilliums For Every Landscape

Painted Trillium 

Painted trillium is a long-lasting, herbaceous, perennial, flowering plant that blooms from late April through June. Its binomial name is Trillium Undulatum, with a family name of Melanthiaceae. The name trillium derives from the Latin 'tri', referring to the parts of the flower that appear in threes. There are three petals and three sepals in the Painted trillium. 

 

 After pollination, the flower produces its fruit, a single three-angled, scarlet-colored berry about 1-2 inches long. Each painted trillium has three sizeable leaf-like bracts arranged around a long flowering stem attached to the single flower.

 

 During colonial (and pre-colonial) days in America, the Painted Trillium was a favorite flower of the Indians and settlers. Gathering these flowers for bouquets was commonplace, but many trilliums were destroyed in this way. 

 

 When the settlers began to clear and develop the land, the vast wildflower population was thinned out. The anatomy and propagation process of the trillium contributes to its reputation as a rare and precious plant. 

 

 Each trillium flower produces one seed case, each containing several seeds. This seed is transported to its new location by ants, not by birds, bees, or wind. Ants deposit the seed in a spot close to the mother plant, and some seeds begin to germinate slowly.

 

 From a single planted seed, about five to nine years pass before the single flower will bloom.

 

 Today, Painted Trillium (and other trillium species) have increased in number and abound in some areas in Eastern North America. Each of these beautiful flowers has spent about a decade from seed to blossom. It has a place of honor in American botanical history and deserves the same in your unique wildflower garden.
