Also known as Lemon Toadshade. Erect mottled foliage. Similar to cuneatum. Pale yellow green, lemon scented flowers. Trilliums are ideal plants for shady places, especially amongst deciduous trees. They like cool moist growing conditions, with good drainage and plenty of leaf mould. Before planting cultivate the soil to a depth of 10cms at least and add well rotted humus matter to poor soils. Plant the rhizomes about 5cms deep length ways. They will grow well in a peat bed. Once planted they are best left undisturbed and they will gradually build up into large clumps. They can be shy flowering in the first year so be patient and let them establish themselves.
