About Our Woodland Wildflowers These natives of North American woodlands are not true bulbs, but are fleshy rhizomatous roots. Blooming in spring, they are wonderful companions for spring flowering bulbs. Our wildflowers are collected on a sustained basis, obtained from reputable licensed sources who carefully monitor and strive to enhance the plant population for future generations.
CANADENSIS “Bloodroot” #SA01 A mysterious, beautiful plant erupting from the earth in April or May, the flowers and foliage appear- ing simultaneously. Pale pinkish white buds thrust from the center of rolled leaves on reddish
stems opening into 2" anemone-like blooms of pure white with lemon-yellow stamens. Glaucous green foliage is strikingly lobed and deeply veined, remaining attractive well into summer. Roots and stems carry translucent orange-red sap, hence, the name bloodroot. Priced below.
[Ht: 6", Bl: M/L, Zones: 3 to 8, SSH/SH]
TRILLIUM “Wake Robin” Easily recognized for their tripartite form with flowers consist- ing of 3 petals and 3 sepals, leaves in groups of 3, and even the berry has 3 cells. [Ht: 10"-15", Bl: M/L, Zones: 4 to 9, SSH/SH]
T. erectum #TR23 “Purple Trillium” Nearly erect 1" to 1½" flowers, mahogany-red to purple (on rare occasions white, yellow or green forms may appear), often with more than one stem per plant. Clump-forming.
T. grandiflorum #TR25
Dazzling white flowers set off by lemon-yellow stamens, often fading to pink. Deeply veined, twisting foliage creates a lively background for the blooms. One of the new trilliums that will thrive in alkaline soil. Do not cut as leaves provide the plant’s only nourishment.
T. luteum #TR27 Pale yellow-green lemon-scented flowers sur- rounded by erect, mottled foliage.
T. sessile #TR29 Sessile means ‘stalkless’ referring to the flower which sits neatly on the foliage like something sumptu- ous being served on a plate. The lovely flowers are deep crimson-maroon framed by pale green leaves richly mottled with darker green markings.
