(aka: Trillium cuneatum A1NC-043) This offering of Trillium cuneatum are seedlings from a plant we discovered in 1998 near Pleasant Hill in Gilmer County, Georgia in a recently logged site where Trillium cuneatum and Trillium decumbens were growing together. What we thought was a potential hybrid turned out to be straight Trillium cuneatum once our seedling crop flowered...obviously the bent stem in the wild was probably due to a falling tree. This vigorous strain appears to be typical Trillium cuneatum except for being much shorter and stockier than normal. The foliage is typical silver and olive speckled leaves topped with purple flowers starting in mid-April (NC).
