Twisted Trillium

2 Photos


Summary

This unique trillium garners considerable attention with attractive, mottled silver and green leaves as well as narrow, twisted, propeller-shaped flower petals borne on plants 12-15″ tall. The dark maroon-colored petals contrast with alternating silvery-green sepals, further enhancing twisted trilliums floral appeal and giving it a unique architectural appeal. Preferring moist, well-drained, organic and alkaline soils, Trillium stamineum is ideal for specimen use or massing in the shady garden. Twisted trillium effectively combines with Thalictrum thalictroides, Dodecatheon meadia, Carex plantaginea, Trillium decumbens, and Adiantum capillus-veneris.
