Kentucky Color: Transplanted Trillium

By Billy Joe Fudge, retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry
My transplanted Trillium is doing well and yours could be, also. While traipsing around in the wild or driving around the countryside enjoying the wildflowers you might want to take some home with you, with landowner permission of course.
A couple of things to remember are: if the plant is growing in the shade or full sun then transplant them into similar conditions, spade underneath the plant and get a spade full of soil (a small ball if you will) to keep from exposing the root mass as much as possible, and carry some plastic grocery bags to put each plant into, root first, to prevent the roots and soil from excessive drying.
Transplant as soon as you get home, water the plant for a few weeks if needed, and don't be discouraged if the plant dies away during the year you plant it. Most likely it will emerge in your very own transplanted wildflower garden the following year in full glory right on schedule.
