hello all...
this is a very generic question... i just want to get as much info as possible...
i have some white trilliums up at my house up north, and i would love to bring a couple back to the city to enjoy here...
i know that their blooming period is almost over, but i'm wondering if there is any way that i would be able to pot them and possibly convince them to bloom again indoors throughout the winter...
from what i hear so far, they are pretty picky...
any advice is greatly appreciated!
thanks!

Some of the trillium in Washington State is a protected plant. I don't know anything about Canada.

We're not supposed to pick trilliums
here in New York either....

and the trillium needs to have the
cold period to rebloom the following year...
and I'm pretty gosh darn sure that they won't stay living indoors....

But the good news is, I do know you can buy trilliums in some of the nurseries...

The Trillium is Ontario's symbol. It is a protected plant - you cannot pick them. I believe though, that it is ok to remove them from the roots for the purposes of transplanting.

Trilliums come up as a first spring flower, usually in woodlands before the trees start making their leaves.

I would love to have trilliums in a plot - they are a gorgeous flower.

Yep I have seen all kinds of trillium with colors that are for sale. Some of them with much bigger blooms.

Wow,

The double blossum one with the violet stripe is really something. And it looks BIG.

I am not getting any more flowers right now, I am not getting any more flowers right now, I am not....

Self discipline is a pain. I want one!!!!!!

I believe they are only protected in provincial parks. I could be wrong. Regardless, they are on my property, so I don't have a problem transplanting them.
The ones I brought back home are still in pots, and have finished blooming. Any recommendations on what I can do to increase the chances of survival and blooming next year?
