Breck's® Legacy Trillium Collection Description

Flowers That Flourish in the Shade

Shade Lovers That Are Native to the U.S.
Trilliums, which are members of the lily family, are known by many common names, including wake robin, birthroot, birthwort and wood lily. Of the world's 43 known trillium species, 38 are native to the U.S. They are primarily found in the wild in the East and Southeast, where they are crucial to maintaining the vitality of woodland areas.
While the blooms of these simplelooking flowering plants consist of just three petals and three leaves, these shade-loving perennials can be colourful—even downright stunning. Trilliums are excellent naturalizers that spread easily and live for decades, so many gardeners use them as ground cover in rock gardens or for planting in groves of shade trees. What's more, their pleasing fragrance attracts butterflies, hummingbirds and honeybees to the landscape.
A triple trifecta of trilliums —just for you! Presenting our new Legacy Trillium Collection featuring three plants from each of three spectacular varieties. They are guaranteed to add pops of low-growing springtime colour to those darkened corners of the yard.
Plant these gorgeous, versatile plants as ground cover in a sun-dappled rock garden, beneath a stand of shade trees or next to some shrubs. Because the trilliums in this collection naturalize very well and live for decades, you will enjoy them for years to come in ever-increasing numbers!

This collection contains three of each below varieties.

  • Great White: This showiest of trilliums produces extraordinary blooms that open pure white and then fade to a blush pink, and have sunny yellow eyes. Blooms measure about 3" across and can be larger on well-established plants. These aromatic, delicate blooms attract pollinators. Height: 12–15"
  • Yellow: Beloved for its elegant simplicity and pretty blooms, Yellow's faintly lemon-scented, 2" flowers appear atop three-leaf whorls that are often gorgeously mottled but tends to die back by midsummer. Thrives in moist woodland gardens or deeply shaded areas. Height: 6–12"
  • Toad: An ideal variety for planting in a deeply shaded corner of a flower garden or for growing in the shade of a stand of trees. Features egg-shaped, dark green leaves measuring up to 4" long and beautifully mottled with purple or white. Has fragrant, maroon, 2" blooms. Height: 8–12"
