Trillium cuneatum coll. #A11NC-114 (Whippoorwill Toadshade)

Trillium cuneatum coll. #A11NC-114 (Whippoorwill Toadshade)

Light Shade to ShadeZone: 5-8 10" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! These flowering-sized nursery seedlings represent genetics from our 2000 collection in Van Buren Co. Tennessee at 2031' elevation, where we found a population growing in an old roadside dump site alongside the likes of Hydrangea arborescens. This population had both purple, yellow, and intermediate flower color forms growing together. So far, all of our seedlings have flowered purple. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08974

Trillium cuneatum coll. #A1NC-027 Yellow Flower (Yellow Flower Whippoorwill Toadshade)

Trillium cuneatum coll. #A1NC-027 Yellow Flower (Yellow Flower Whippoorwill Toadshade)

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 5-8, possibly warmer 10" tall Origin: USA
NEW! This plant collectors' moment is thanks to a single clone of yellow-flowering Trillium cuneatum we found in 1998 in Oconee County, SC in the midst of a large population of typical purple-flowered forms. We finally have enough seedlings from the original, which have also flowered yellow, to share a few. Starting in mid-April, this easy-to-grow toadshade produces silver and olive mottled foliage, topped, in this case, with bright yellow flowers. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08962

Trillium cuneatum coll. #A1NC-043 (Whippoorwill Toadshade)

Trillium cuneatum coll. #A1NC-043 (Whippoorwill Toadshade)

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 5-8, possibly warmer 10" tall Origin: USA
NEW! This offering of Trillium cuneatum are seedlings from a plant we discovered in 1998 in Gilmer County, Georgia in a recently logged site where T. cuneatum and T. decumbens were growing together. What we thought was a potential hybrid turned out to be straight T. cuneatum once our seedling crop flowered....obviously the bent stem in the wild was probably due to a falling tree. This vigorous strain appears to be typical T. cuneatum with the silver and olive speckled leaves topped with purple flowers starting in mid-April (NC). Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08968
$22.00  


Trillium cuneatum Silver Leaf (Silver Leaf Purple Toadshade)

Trillium cuneatum Silver Leaf (Silver Leaf Purple Toadshade)

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 5-8, possibly warmer 10" tall Origin: USA
NEW! We are quite excited about our first offering of the rare, solid silver-foliage form of Trillium cuneatum, which comes from Oconee County, SC, thanks to an initial clone we discovered in the wild in 1998. Since then, we have been planting seed from this plant and now have enough flowering-sized plants to offer. Since these are seedlings, each clone is unique. The silver leaves are held atop burgundy stems and topped with typical dark purple flowers in early April (NC). As you can imagine, supplies are very limited, so don't delay. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08966

Trillium flexipes (Bent White Trillium)

Trillium flexipes (Bent White Trillium)

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 4-7, at least 18" tall Origin: USA
NEW! Trillium flexipes has a large native range, from Minnesota south to Alabama, where it can be found on forest slopes in alkaline soils. In stature, some forms can easily be mistaken for T. grandiflorum, T. erectum, T. cernuum, or T. rugelii. T. flexipes, which can produce several flowering stalks from a single rhizome, can reach 18" tall when it starts flowering in mid-April (NC). The outward-facing creamy white flowers are held just above the rosette of green leaves. Our flowering-sized plants are all nursery-propagated from seed from Tennessee's Morgan County region on the eastern end of the Cumberland Plateau....a long and arduous process. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08855

Trillium foetidissimum (Foetid Trillium)

Trillium foetidissimum (Foetid Trillium)

Light ShadeZone: 5-9, at least 10" tall Origin: USA
Despite being endemic to only a small region of beech forests and floodplains on both the Louisiana and Mississippi sides of the Mississippi River, T. foetidissimum is as hardy in Minnesota. The amazing sessile trillium sprouts a 10" stalk in early spring, topped first with three olive-green leaves dramatically highlighted with dark blotches. Atop the leaves are the narrow, maroon-red petals. T. foetidissimum is extremely easy to grow in a wide range of garden conditions. Our offering represents 5-year-old flowering-sized plants, grown from hand-pollinated seedlings here at PDN. The original parent clone for this offering was collected outside Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07103

Trillium lancifolium coll. #A1NC-059 (Lance Leaf Trillium)

Trillium lancifolium coll. #A1NC-059 (Lance Leaf Trillium)

Light Shade to ShadeZone: 5-9, at least 6" tall Origin: USA
In 1998, we found this fast-multiplying form of Trillium lancifolium in Whitfield, Georgia, growing in a flooded, poison ivy-covered waste area behind a truck stop. We were able to secure a few divisions from the main clump and, finally, have enough flowering-sized seedlings to share. For us, this is one of the earliest, cutest, and also one of the smallest trilliums. The narrow, grey-green foliage is heavily speckled purple and topped by a typical liver-colored flower in late March and April in NC. This has proven to be very easy to grow in a dry woodland and quickly makes a wonderful clump. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #05611

Trillium lancifolium coll. #A2FL-013 (Lance Leaf Toadshade)

Trillium lancifolium coll. #A2FL-013 (Lance Leaf Toadshade)

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 6-9, at least 6" tall Origin: USA
NEW! One of the highlights of my botanizing career was the opportunity to tromp around the Florida panhandle with legendary native plantsman, Angus Gholsen in 2003. Angus took me to a unique population of Trillium lancifolium in Gadsden County, Florida, where the leaves were more of a silver and olive pattern...much brighter than what I had seen further north. Additionally, the petal color was mostly bicolor yellow and red...some plants have more red and some more yellow. Since these are nursery-propagated seedlings, each will be different. These are a vigorous strain, although they do not offset as fast as our Georgia A1NC-059 collection. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08964

Trillium ludovicianum coll. #A2LA-015 (Louisiana Toadshade)

Trillium ludovicianum coll. #A2LA-015 (Louisiana Toadshade)

Light ShadeZone: 6-9, at least 10" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! This strain of the Louisiana Trillium ludovicianum represents our flowering-sized seedlings, grown from an original collection in Caldwell Parish, Louisiana. The 10" tall stalks are topped with silver and olive mottled leaves, topped with narrow red petals, usually starting for us around late February-early March. These are in very limited supply. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08963

Trillium ludovicianum Ruby Falls coll. #A1NC-056 (Ruby Falls Louisiana Toadshade)

Trillium ludovicianum Ruby Falls coll. #A1NC-056 (Ruby Falls Louisiana Toadshade)

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 5-9, guessing 14" tall Origin: USA
NEW! We sure opened a can of worms when we discovered a disjunct population of Trillium ludovicianum in Hamilton County, Tennessee in 1998, growing alongside Trillium cuneatum. As we studied them in the wild, we found them to be earlier flowering, much taller (14" vs. 10") and with much longer and more blunt tipped petals than T. cuneatum. Although our find was once thought to be a new species, it was later determined to be a major undocumented range extension from its center of distribution in central Louisiana. Our offerings are flowering-sized nursery seed-grown plants from our original collection. These are in very limited supply, so don't delay. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08967

Trillium luteum (Yellow Trillium)

Trillium luteum (Yellow Trillium)

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 4-7 12" tall Origin: USA
NEW! We are ecstatic to offer flowering-sized nursery seed-propagated plants of the East Coast native (Kentucky to Virginia) Trillium luteum. The seed came from Tennessee's Morgan County region on the eastern end of the Cumberland Plateau. For us, Trillium luteum begins flowering in mid-April (NC) with green and silver flecked foliage, topped with a lemon-scented butter yellow flower....truly one of the most stunning of the genus. In the wild, T. luteum is usually found in alkaline soil regions, but we have found it to adapt well to slightly acidic soils. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08856

Trillium recurvatum (Bloody Nose Trillium)

Trillium recurvatum (Bloody Nose Trillium)

Light Shade to ShadeZone: 4-8, at least 18" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! We are thrilled to add another nursery-propagated trillium to our offerings...a Wisconsin form of Trillium recurvatum. This delightful native ranges from the Great Lakes south to Texas. The 18" tall stems are topped with three olive-green leaves, nicely mottled with liver-colored flecking. Between the leaves sits the blunt red flower, looking indeed like a bloody nose (late April in NC). This is an easy-to-grow species in the garden that offsets well. We have seen this in the wild growing in bogs with arisaema and in drier areas under large oaks. It does seem to prefer slightly more moist soils than most other trillium species. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #05821

Trillium recurvatum coll. #A3LA-072 (Bloody Nose Trillium)

Trillium recurvatum coll. #A3LA-072 (Bloody Nose Trillium)

Light ShadeZone: 5-9 10" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! This superb form of Trillium recurvatum hails from our 2004 accession from Nacogdoches County in east Texas at the high elevation of 355'...at least that's high in east Texas. These represent divisions from our original single rhizome, indicating the speed at which this form offsets. The foliage is heavily mottled silver and olive and is topped in late March (NC) with short dark purple flowers...a vigorous grower! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08684

Trillium underwoodii (Underwood's Trillium)

Trillium underwoodii (Underwood's Trillium)

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 5-9 8" tall Origin: USA
This is a stunning southeast native trillium from the dry deciduous forests of the deep South region including Alabama, Georgia, and the Panhandle of Florida. Despite this range, it has remarkable hardiness. The stunning, mottled foliage features a dark, medium, and light green checkerboard pattern with a silver streak down the center of each leaf. Emerging in February and March, each petiole is topped with a dark purple flower to 1" tall, contrasting nicely with the foliage. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #02973

Trithrinax
Trithrinax campestris (Argentine Silver Palm)

Trithrinax campestris (Argentine Silver Palm)

SunZone: 8-10, at least 144" tall Origin: Argentina
Open House/Web-Only! I'll never forget the day I first saw these palms growing in open savannas in northern Argentina in 2002...certainly the most beautiful palms I'd ever seen. The slow-growing trunks eventually reach 12' tall, clothed in very stiff leaves that range from grey to the most beautiful silver-grey you can imagine. We are pleased to offer 2-year-old seedlings for those looking to experiment. I expect them to show very good cold tolerance, but the key to winter survival in colder zones is to keep the plants dry since they are natives of dry desert regions. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #05602

Typhonium
Typhonium roxburghii (Dwarf Voodoo Lily)

Typhonium roxburghii (Dwarf Voodoo Lily)

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 7-10 12" tall Origin: Tropical Asia
Open House/Web-Only! (syn: Typhonium blumei) "Honey...I shrunk the amorphophallus." Thanks to Jim Waddick for sharing this stunning and easy-to-grow little aroid that is completely unknown to all but the most devout plant geeks. The glossy green, hastate-shaped leaves emerge in June to make a small, 1' tall (with age) x 1' wide clump. After the leaves emerge, the clump begins producing flowers like a limp, dwarf Amorphophallus konjac, with an equally interesting aroma. This is a great specimen subject for the woodland garden. If you have neighbors that you hate, plant one near their open window for a great laugh! We previously offered this under the incorrect name of Typhonium divaricatum. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #02535

Uvularia
Uvularia sessilifolia 'Cobblewood Gold' (Gold Edge Bellwort)

Uvularia sessilifolia 'Cobblewood Gold' (Gold Edge Bellwort)

Light Shade to ShadeZone: 4-9 8" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! Here is a neat, little-known selection of an old East Coast native, discovered by plantsman Darrell Probst in a patch of woods in western Massachusetts. In early spring, the tiny stalks of this lily emerge from a short underground rhizome. The wiry, 8" tall stems are clothed with small green leaves, each with a delightful golden border. Each stem ends with a small, yellow, bell-shaped flower in early spring. In 10 years, expect a 2' wide mass of stems...great for a special spot in the woodland garden! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #03100
