Spring Wildflowers: White Trillium

The White Trillium (Trillium grandiflorum, also called Large-flowered Trillium) has started to bloom — finally! This is a fairly common, carpet-forming, spring ephemeral that thrives in rich, moist woodlands. The large, showy flowers, 2 to 4 inches across, often turn pinkish as they age.

  1. Breathtaking. There is something magical about a Trillium. Ours have been long gone for sometime already. And they’re the smaller, white variety and on the rare side. Do the deer eat them?
