This rather more diminutive but most handsome trillium bears sizeable maroon flowers with recurving segments and paler anthers. It is superb in a shady organic bed where in time it will spread to make impressive clumps.
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them in a cool place onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and sometimes they wait for spring before emerging whenever they are sown. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan, no matter how long it takes for germination to occur.
