Trillium undulatum (Painted Trillium)
I have been on the hunt to find the very rare Trillium undulatum (Painted Trillium) for many months. I am very pleased to announce that I was successful. I just wish I had found it sooner. The window for shipping has passed and it will not be available until the Fall of 2020. The source I found can supply 7 year old bareroot plants. I will be ordering in August of 2020 and will lbe sending out a notice to any interested members of The Gardener’s Club who wish to order some for fall delivery.
Painted Trilliums are found from Ontario in the north to northern Georgia in the south and from Michigan in the west to Nova Scotia in the east. A very pretty but slightly harder to grow Trillium. It must have shade and very acid soil, the pH must be around 4.5. It will tolerate some dry soil but the pH must be right or it will not survive. Also this one will not tolerate heat and should be grown on the cool north side. Deer resistant. For sale through The Gardener’s Club at Plant Paradise Country Gardens.

All plant sales are through The Gardener’s Club at Plant Paradise Country Gardens, in Caledon Ontario. As the 2017 Destination Garden Centre of the Year, we have been growing and selling hardy, unique and hard-to-find perennials organically for over 12 years. We are always trialing and testing them in the botanical gardens at Plant Paradise Country Gardens. Our growing practices benefit the whole environment, including the pollinators and beneficial insects.
At Plant Paradise Country Gardens we control every aspect of growing plants on-site. This begins with mixing soil in the potting shed and all the steps in between until the fully grown plants are ready for your garden. This gives us the opportunity to have control over the quality. Our responsibility is to grow healthy plants that are environmentally sustainable. We use only organic gardening methods to grow high quality plants without the use of pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers. Our plants are available in one, two or three gallon containers.
We DO NOT use NeoNicotinoids which is a pesticide used by many plant nurseries that sell to garden centres and big box stores. This pesticide is a known cause of the decline in the bee population. Everything a grower uses in plant production is systemically released into the molecular structure of the plant. This becomes a chain reaction in the long-term health and vibrancy of the plant and your growing environment.
By supporting our environmentally sustainable organic perennial nursery you’ll be a part of the positive change that makes a difference in our environment. We believe you’ll see the difference.
