Trillium kurabayashii



Being one of the first to rise in spring, the foliage is deep green initially with strong deep brown/red mottling which lasts for many weeks until the foliage has fully expanded. The flowers are the main attraction here as always on trilliums. These are deep red and borne from the centre of each leaf, each petal can be up to 10 cms high on well grown plants and often even larger!

Virtually confined to California this handsome, robust and very strong growing species grows well in the UK and in cultivation generally, despite its limited wild range.
