The rare beauty of trilliums has made these woodland flowers among the most coveted specimens a dedicated gardener can grow--if and when one is lucky enough to locate nursery-propagated plants or patient enough to attempt growing them from seed. This highly readable guide presents a trove of information, complete with lovely photos, line drawings, and serviceable descriptions to help in identifying all known species. Having both grown trilliums for years and undertaken extensive study of plants in their native habitats, the authors know their subject intimately. Their enthusiasm and expertise are admirably conveyed here with invaluable counsel on plant habit in a garden setting. All trillium, from the most common types to those species acknowledged to be endangered, are discussed in considerable depth regarding areas of plant distribution and general habitat.
