Has not bloomed
Reviewed By: Deborah Fohringer (Bellefonte, Pennsylvania)
I purchased 3 of these in spring 2012. Two have always looked half dead. The third is a beautiful plant, but none have bloomed.

disappointed... twice
Reviewed By: walksbeauty (Sapello, New Mexico)
Sure, the climate in New Mexico is not exactly the perfect place for Trillium but having them when I lived in Washington state I had created a woodland micro-climate they would do well in so I ordered all offered varieties. Not one thrived. I got a replacement and not one of them even came up. These seem to be very weak bareroot starts. very disappointed!

Trilliums in the NW
Reviewed By: Diana (Salem, OR)
My father alway grew Trilliums, granted he had a green thumb. But these guys can really do well here in the northwest given the proper care. And such a sweet addition to your garden!

misnamed!!
Reviewed By: Stephanie Solt (Essex Junction, VT)
This plant is Trillium rivale. It's a west coast species that doesn't do well on the east coast because our summers are too hot for it. I've never seen it referred to as a purple trillium. That epithet is generally for T. erectum, an east coast species. I'm surprised to see it listed. Generally, trillium are not grown by commerical growers but dug from the wild and grown on in the nursery since it takes 3-7 years for it to attain flowering size.
