Yellow Trillium is a Flowering Perennial
The Yellow Trillium, also known as Trillium luteum or yellow wakerobin, is a flowering plant that falls within the scientific family category referred to as Melanthiaceae. The flowers grow exceptionally well in the hardy plant zone 4-7, zones present in places like North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia. The flower is also known to grow in remote locations within northern Virginia, Michigan, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Ontario, Canada.
Yellow Trillium has Bright Yellow Flowers and Dark Green Leaves
The flower usually has dark green leaves and bright yellow flowers with three to four petals. It typically reaches 16 inches or 40 centimeters at full maturity and can be as comprehensive as 14 inches or 30 centimeters. The flower is known as a herbaceous perennial, flowering only in the early to the mid-spring season.
Yellow Trillium usually grows at the base of deciduous trees
The yellow trillium grows best in moist, dense soil with good drainage. You will find it growing at the base of deciduous trees in its natural environment, where it can enjoy the heavy shade. The flower proliferates, taking only 4-6 months to reach its full height and width if the growing conditions are right.
Yellow Trillium is a beautiful addition to any garden.
The beautiful yellow flower is often used as a decorative plant in yards and gardens across large northern and central United States swathes. Yellow trillium is an ideal garden flower because it can thrive in heavy shade and is deficient in maintenance. As long as the flower has fertilized soil and adequate water, it will do well.
Yellow trillium puts off a delightful aroma, another reason it is a favorite of many home gardeners. Its fragrance occurs around full maturity, right towards the end of spring, where the flower can be harvested and used in a homemade flower bouquet or floral arrangement. What is very distinct about its fragrance is that it smells like lemon-scented flowers, an attribute that won it the Award of Garden Merit, a prestigious accolade given out by the Royal Horticultural Society in London, United Kingdom.
