Black Silver Toadshade

Getting ready to open in late January at JLBG is the very rare, silver-foliaged form of the Southeast US native toadshade, Trillium underwoodii. This species is known for its highly mottled foliage, but if you look long enough, you’ll eventually find one of these odd silver-foliage variants within each species. Trillium underwoodii ‘Black Silver’ is a discovery of US plantsman, Adam Black.

From an ex-situ conservation standpoint, we are a bit fanatical about trilliums. Our JLBG collection includes 34 species with 4 varieties, 14 nothospecies, 10 undescribed, 8 undetermined and 1898 unique clones. Explore our trillium photo gallery.
