This 2011 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction represents seed-grown plants from a population we discovered in 2003 in Smith County, Mississippi, where Trillium ludovicianum and Trillium cuneatum grew together in low, moist flood plains. When we first saw these in the wild, we were pretty sure they represented natural hybrids between the two species and, after flowering their seedlings, we are even more convinced. The 1' tall stalks of Trillium x ludoviciatum terminate with whorls of silver and olive mottled leaves topped with narrow red petals which vary within the size and shape range of both parents. Trillium x ludoviciatum usually starts flowering for us around late February to early March. We offered these originally as Trillium ludovicianum A2LA-006 before we made our final determination of their hybrid nature.
