Trillium sessile has two major centers of distribution in the US...east and west of the Mississippi River. Looking for the road less traveled trillium wise, we sought out the Southeastern most population near Roanoke Rapids, NC. Our offerings are flowering-size, nursery seed propagated plants from that population in Halifax County, NC. Virtually all of the Trillium sessile we've seen in collections worldwide is actually Trillium cuneatum. The true Trillium sessile is dramatically different and quite easy to recognize. In stature, Trillium sessile is a much smaller trillium, with light green, lightly mottled foliage. The petals are much smaller, narrower, and a lighter dusty red compared to the dark purple petals of Trillium cuneatum.
