    Trillium undulatum is one of the more distinctive species. Ranging far north [Michigan to Nova Scotia] and south [along Appalachian Mountains and Blue Ridge] in cool environments, it [a]lways grows in strongly acidic humus-rich soils and blooms late April to June, depending upon latitude and elevation. Trillium undulatum is the most difficult eastern Trillium to cultivate outside its native habitat.
