Trilliums are exquisite perennials that flower in the spring. They enjoy light shade with well-drained soil. The varieties we offer make good garden plants in the UK.
Trilliums are propagated and grown by Twelve Nunns Nursery, a specialist nursery based in South Lincolnshire. The parent plants have been either split to produce more plants or hand-pollinated to produce seeds and grown on. None of the plants we supply are from wild stock.
We offer our full range of Trilliums for despatch in the dormant season which is from the mid July until November. They are sent as freshly lifted, healthy Trillium rhizomes with live roots in moist packing material. Our rhizomes are at least 4 years old. Given the right situation and soil they should flower after 1 year of planting.
Erythronium are spring-flowering perennial plants with elegant pendant flowers and attractive mottled glossy leaves. Our collection has taken many years to develop.
The species and cultivars of Erythronium that we offer have been chosen because they are good garden plants and are hardy in the British Isles. They grow well in dappled shade and the bulbs should be kept damp and not left to dry out.
The best time to buy and plant Erythronium bulbs is in July/August/September, because they will root down in the autumn while the soil is still warm. The attractive glossy leaves start to emerge towards the end of February, and flower from late March through April.
Please note: We send these to you as dormant, freshly lifted, flowering size bulbs from July through to September ready for potting up or planting directly into the garden.
