Trillium luteum – Wake Robin
Wake Robin, Trillium luteum is one of the best-know and beloved of the woodland flowers. In spring three upright yellow flower petals, which are backed by three sepals, bloom over three green leaves with darker green speckles. This perfect harmony of three gives Wake Robin its other common name the Trinity Flower. In summer plant goes dormant making it a great companion plant for larger leafed shade plants like Hosta. Flowers have a faint lemon scent.
Plant in soil that has been amended with organic matter like Cotton Burr Compost. Plant bulbs 4-6″ deep and 4-6″ apart, about 3-4 a square foot. Plant in full sun to light shade. Part shade will keep the flowers looking better longer. Keep soil moist to encourage root formation.
