This plant collectors' moment is thanks to a single clone of yellow-flowering Trillium cuneatum we found in 1998 in Oconee County, SC in the midst of a large population of typical purple-flowered forms. This is only the third time in 19 years we've had enough of these nursery propagated, yellow flowered seedlings of the original clone to share. We are offering these under the seed strain name, Trillium cuneatum 'Oconee Yellow'. Starting in mid-April, this easy-to-grow sessile toadshade produces silver and olive mottled foliage, topped, in this case, with bright yellow, fruity-scented flowers.
