Plant explorer John Lonsdale visited the Henry Botanic Garden in May and took us on a tour of our Trillium collection. During the walkabout, John discussed the methods he uses to cultivate and propagate Trilliums at Edgewood, his USDA zone 6b garden in SE Pennsylvania. He described the siting and natural and artificial methods he uses to successfully grow most of the Trillium species found in the eastern USA, from the early-rising sessile species found below the Fall Line in the Deep South to the pedicellate species that favor the cooler, higher habitats of the eastern mountains.
