Red trillium ( plant/Root) Perennial native wildflower
Red trillium, or Trillium erectum, is an exotic wildflower that adds a touch of color to any outdoor space. Its bright red petals and vibrant green leaves stand out in any landscape. Not only is it unique and eye-catching, but it's also effortless to grow!
grows from a vigorous root system, forming a sturdy, seven- to twelve-inch high green-brown stem. Its true green, unbranched, ovate leaves measure about six inches long. They grow in whorls from the central stem and sometimes gently curve inward.
They grow in attractive clusters and become dense over time--some people even use this plant as a ground cover.
Trillium can be grown in clay soils, if amended with peat moss and compost. Spacing: Space the small rhizomes (roots) about 6- to 12-inches apart and about 2- to 4-inches deep. Trilliums naturally multiply into clumps with multiple flowers, but this may take 2 to 4 years after planting.
