Trillium

Hidden in a little valley on the farm is a stand of trees. In April, the forest floor takes on a lovely white or lavender color.

Trillium is in bloom.






Trillium is a native perennial. I like to think that my ancestors found the wildflower as lovely as I do.

The flower can be damaged if picked and take years to recover. I never pick them. I just go look at them and take pictures.

  1. My grandparents in Alabama have trillium in their woods! I love them as well. My grandmother says they're a sign of extremely healthy soil.

  3. Wow, you have a lot of trillium near you. I saw only one flower in "my" woods. The penstemon, wood violets and phlox, however, are quite plentiful.
