These trilliums are from RHS Harlow Carr’s beautiful Spring woodland garden on the hillside behind the stone building used for exhibitions. It’s a little out of the way and I wonder how many visitors have discovered it – I only stumbled on it by mistake. It struck me as being fairly newly planted but if so, they’ve done a great job.
RHS gardens are rightly closed to help protect us, but of all the gardens that are out of reach, this is the one that calls me most plaintively.
I am thankful for what I have, but I would have loved to see how this garden is developing.
While I’m on a roll, I’m adding in a few ‘spare’ trilliums from my files. I’m not sure where the first was taken, but I suspect somewhere in Alabama.

Fabulous plants. Those at Harlow Carr have the appearance of being planted only recently as they have not bulked up. Nonetheless they are very attractive and will improve with each year.
That will be a sight for sore eyes. I imagine they will hybridise readily there too. I remember marvelling at the soil in that area too.
Gorgeous, all of them.
They’re not as common over here as I would like, so I still get over-excited when I see them. Mind you, that could be said about a lot of plants. 🙂
That pink Trillium grandiflorum! And the double white one! Now experiencing plant lust. I have one clump of trillium in the back of my wooded urban garden, thanks to prior owners who were gardeners. It has the brownish maroon petals, so I think it is Trillium sessile.
I have a book on trilliums but the more I look at them, the less easier I think it must be to identify them.
I have some T. recurvatum and T. grandiflorum, not yet ready to bloom. The most wonderful displays of Trillium we ever saw was at the Great Smoky Mtn. National Park.
I’d have loved to have seen those.
