Trillium chloropetalum ex 'Volcano'

Giant Trillium


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Volcano is perhaps the finest example of one of the finest species of trilliums, taking the already difficult to improve on formula of T. chloropetalum and adorning it with saturated blood red flowers. Unfortunately it is extremely difficult to lay hands on and even our illustrious rare plant powers have none to spare. However these seedlings of Volcano could help you lead you part of the way to the euphoria of Volcano. These are not yet of flowering size so whether the exquisite flowers have been maintained in the genetic mixing pot is still to be determined. What we can vouch for are the incredible leaves on these plants, easily rivalling or surpassing their parent, deliciously dappled with silver and olive, they should serve to tide your lust until the grand reveal of the flowers.
