Perhaps more than any other perennial, this rare woodland treasure earns the right to be called “exquisite”. Paris polyphylla is a Trillium relative from the Himalayas, Western China, and southeast Asia. The stem is circled by a single whorl of glossy, green leaves which is echoed by the flower with its own whorl of green bracts subtending threadlike yellow-green petals, golden stamens and purple ovary. Part shade in rich soil. Can take a 'year off' after planting and not emerge till the next year.
