The Gillenia genus of the Rosaceae family includes only two species originally from the moist woodlands of North America.
Gillenia trifoliata develops graceful, deeply-ribbed leaves divided into three lobes. It can grow up to 60 cm in height and has beautiful pure white filmy blooms.
Its original environment tells us about its growing conditions. We plant this rare variety in a cold spot, partial shade, in acid to neutral moist, humus-rich soil. Slow growing. Very hardy.
It goes very well planted with Cimicifuga' White Pearl' and Primula japonica 'Apple Blossom'.
