Aging trillium bloom
DP133-2016 Posted Friday, May 13
Trillium grandiflorum. It is typical for the white blooms to turn pink, and even magenta, as they age.
Although this plant was growing in the wild, trillium is one native wildflower that can be cultivated successfully in shade gardens, and is offered for sale by many plant nurseries. It is a fairly long-lived perennial, with any given plant growing gradually larger, and producing larger blooms until it reaches full maturity.
