Trillium vaseyi

2016/8/11 14:30:38
Sweet Beth (Trillium vaseyi) TRILL-ee-um VAY-see-eye Genus: Trillium This trillium bears the largest flowers in the genus—almost 4 inches across. Growing to almost 2 feet high and not quite as wide, it is also one of the tallest trilliums. Its chocolate-red blossoms (occasionally white) boast strongly curved petals and prominent stamens. They appear just beneath the leaves in mid- to late spring. Noteworthy Characteristics: Most trilliums are native to woodlands and scrub of North America. Grown in groups in a woodland or shady naturalized area, they make an elegant understory planting. Because they go dormant in summer, plant trilliums with other shade-loving perennials to share their place until they reappear the following spring.  Care: Provide rich, moist, but well-drained soil with a neutral to acidic pH in partial to full shade.Add an annual mulch of rich, organic matter. Propagation: Trilliums propagate readily by division when dormant in late summer or early fall. Problems: Smut, rust, fungal spots, slugs, snails.
