Trillium grandiflora "flora plena"
« on: June 12, 2018, 06:48:18 PM »
My Trillium - Ian Christies finest -has now got too big for its allocated space. It produced 15 flowers and is now growing under a nearby Rhododendron.  When is the best time to lift it and can I safely separate the plant as my daughter covets it !

I have been splitting mine today and potting them up till I can find a space in the garden. They donít seem to mind. Saying this it took me years to pick up the courage to do this.
