You can snip them from the plant if needed.

Leave the leaves to die down naturally.

Q. trillium care

should I cut back my trilliums this fall?

A.

If the leaves are ratty looking, trim them if you wish. Left in place, the leaves will compost and add to soil fertility. There is no requirement here, it is personal preference that guides your decision.

Q. Trilliums

We have had Trillium flowers in our garden for years. Unfortunately while trimming yesterday, they accidentally got cut off. Is there any chance of them coming back?

Answered by

A.

It is possible that they will, especially if this is an established bed. Although they are sensitive in nature, they can recover from damage from foraging animals, and being stepped on. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/trillium/growing-trillium.htm
