The Trillium Collection in the Holmes Trillium Garden at the Huntsville Botanical Garden has achieved Plant Collections Network Accreditation. The collection of 40 Eastern US species and over 220 selected forms and cultivars is displayed throughout the garden. Further measures are being taken to safeguard this flagship collection, transfer critical documentation, and develop interpretive materials to maximize its educational value. 

The Holmes Trillium Garden is named in honor of Harold Holmes. He began volunteering in 2006 with the goal of creating a nationally-recognized trillium display. This garden is a shady sanctuary for over 60 species of trillium, containing almost every known species from the Tennessee Valley and surrounding regions. Today we can thank his perseverance for the wide array of trilliums in this area.
