Tril­lium chloropetalum

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

The leaves and pe­tals of the so-called wake-robin are grouped in threes and this wood­land bulb needs plenty of sum­mer mois­ture and good, rich soil to suc­ceed. The ruff of leaves are nearly as amaz­ing as the flower it­self and a long-es­tab­lished colony will take your breath away. The flow­ers are bur­gundy, some­times muddy and oc­ca­sion­ally white. Wake Robin Nurs­ery near Balchutha some­times have these del­i­cate wood­lan­ders in stock.
