Paris polyphylla is an unusual plant and will produce slender pointed leaves in a whorl with greenish flowers. The Autumn fruits are a brilliant scarlet. Paris are not commonly available and not easy to grow from seeds, so the roots that we supply are ideal. Related to trilliums they also enjoy the shadier parts of the garden in soils that are humus rich and do not dry out. Once planted leave to establish for a number of years, Paris prefer the shadier parts of the garden.
