Unusual, Fragrant Trillium More Widely Available

Trilliums are beautiful native wildflowers that adorn deciduous forest floors in spring. While most people are familiar with the traditional white-flowering trillium (Trillium grandiflorum), there are other species that are more unique. One that is particularly alluring, and now more readily available, is the yellow trillium (Trillium viride var luteum).

This southeastern native wildflower stands 1 foot tall and has unusual upward-facing, yellow flowers. Once open, the flowers have a delicious lemon fragrance. After the flowers fade white, golden berries form. The berries and the variegated, heart-shaped foliage make this trillium attractive into the summer long after it has finished blooming. Like all trilliums, this species grows best in shade in USDA zones 4 to 8.
