Trillium pusillum is a dwarf woodland treasure with green to red-tinged sepals and white petals that age to pink.
Trillium pusillum is a dwarf species with a thin, branching, horizontal rhizome. It produces one or two slender scapes up to eight inches tall. The three leaves are dark green, sometimes with a red tinge when young. The flower has three green to red-tinged sepals and white petals that age to pink. Trillium are exquisite plants for the shade garden blooming in early to mid spring with their elegant flowers. They are spring ephemerals that usually go dormant by summer, sometimes earlier in the first year they're planted. Trillium can also sulk a bit in their second year and can remain dormant for a full year before settling in for beautiful displays for years to come.
