Prairie Trillium (Trillium recurvatum)


Prairie Trillium: Trillium recurvatum, which most shorten to prairie trillium or prairie wake-robin, is a perennial wildflower that's easy to grow and lovely to behold.


The flowers add a rich, bold shade of red that adds color to a natural area, shade garden, or the middle part of a border. Some TN Nursery customers enjoy it so much that they invest in more, using it as a ground cover in deep shady spots where they can't grow anything else.


Prairie trillium is a North American native species well-suited to the southeastern and lower midwestern states.


Trillium recurvatum Is So Easy to Grow


If you have the proper growing conditions, prairie trillium is super easy to grow. It resists pests, disease, and drought.


What conditions must you provide? It needs a full-shade to partial-shade location, soil that drains well, and soil with woody organic materials--compost, peat moss, or wood mulch will work fine.


It can tolerate short dry spells, but you must water it during the hottest times of the year and if you experience an extended dry period.


The Lovely Red Flowers Are Mid-Spring Beauties


The prairie trillium leaves grow in mottled green whorls around a central stem. The leaves are broad and can grow as large as seven inches long.


Just above the leaves, the red flower emerges in the middle of spring. The flower is a deep red or burgundy hue, with three two to three-inch-long and slim petals. The petals stand tall with a slight, graceful curve. The timing of these flowers is perfect--after the spring flowering bulbs finish their blossoms but before the summer perennials begin to bloom.


The flowers will produce tiny, inedible berries. That is, they are inedible to humans. However, birds, insects, and small animals in the ecosystem will thank you for the treat.
