Great White Trillium - Trillium grandiflorum

The Great White Trillium is also known as the Trillium grandiflorum, wood lily, white wake-robin, large-flowered trillium, the white trillium or the triple blanc (French). The Trillium is a herbaceous perennial that is native to eastern North America. It has white flowers and is commonly found in mixed upland forests. It is easily recognizable by its waxy white flower with three petals and three sepals, blooming atop a single stalk arising from a whorl of three broad green leaves. The leaves are 3-4 inches long, but some can reach up to 6 inches. The flowers average about 3 & 1/2 inches across. The trilliums flowers open from late spring to early summer. The flowers acquire a pink tone with age and will give way to berry-like capsules. The Trillium is a spring ephemeral. Ephemerals are plants whose life cycles are synchronized with the deciduous woodland it favors. Trilliums release fruits in the summer; each produces about 16 seeds. The seeds are typically dispersed by ants. White Trillium is one of the most popular trilliums in cultivation and is a particularly conspicuous forest flower. It is a member of the lily family and grows happily in heavily composted and partially shaded woodlands. Trillium grows from an underground root stalk (rhizome) and will slowly form a spreading colony if it is allowed to grow undisturbed.
