The elegant and showy flowers of this fascinating woodland plant are eagerly awaited each spring. Also called wake robins, trilliums produce handsome flowers in pure white - some with dark purple or yellow centers - rose-pink, or streaked with maroon. Enthusiasm for trilliums is so great in Europe, where the popular plants are not native, that rare species and forms sell for fantastic prices. In Canada, the great white trillium (Trillium grandiflorum) is the provincial flower of Ontario and, in the United States, it has been featured by the Post Office in a wildflower stamp series. Best known of the trilliums with its 3-inch flowers, this species announces spring in large drifts over shady, moist ground. This first book-length treatment of this graceful garden plant covers trilliums worldwide. Part field guide and part gardener's handbook, it is intended for gardeners, naturalists, and amateur and professional botanists.
