An unusual Trillium in that it will tolerate limy soils quite well. The stems rise to a height of around 40 cms although they may be higher when the plant makes a tight clump. Usual trifoliate leaves and flower pedicels emerging from the centre of these. The flowers are crisp white, open faced and face outwards with a strong bend on the upper part of the pedicel. The anthers and ovary often have a pink tinge.
