Great White Trillium
Great White Trillium - Trillium Grandiflorum
Great White Trilliums may have the name high white, but once the flower blooms and the plant is used for pollination, the flower will start turning pink. The flower is so beautiful that it can also be called the birth root or three flowers because of its three petals. It has three bracts or as an ordinary person calls them leaves. The leaves are nutritious for deer and birds. Homeowners can plant this flower along gardens so that deer will eat this and then they will leave the other plants alone. This flower has six petals and three leaves.
The great white trillium is a meal for some animals, and they thrive on it as a food source.
This plant has a slight fragrance that brings butterflies to the area. It can grow well in climate zones three to 9. It prefers moist soil and part shade.
A native of North America, the great white trillium is a white flower with three petals. The bulb does best in partly-shaded woodland areas in fertile, well-drained dirt. It can sometimes be grown in clay. When planting, the rhizomes of the white trillium should be planted about 4 inches deep and a foot apart. The best time to transplant the tremendous white trillium is in early spring or late summer. Trilliums are low maintenance plants. If you plant them in fertile, moist soil, you will not have to give them additional water. It doesn't require trimming either. If you want to see maximum results the next year, you should mulch the area where the plants grow in September or October.
