White Trilliums

White Trillium, Trillium grandiflorum, is a prominent wildflower on rich woodland sites. As the species name implies, the large, showy blossoms are indeed grand.

  1. I’ve never found a patch of Trilliums as thick as yours. Out here, we’re lucky if we get a few singles scattered here or there. Yours are taller than what I see out here, too. They’re wonderful!

    • Thanks Gunta! I’ve discovered several “carpets” of these beauties over the years but it isn’t quite what it seems and I’m at a loss for answers. I can drive for miles through rural woodlands and see only scattered plants or nothing at all. One correlation seems to be deer density. Carpets are often on steep hillsides, in lightly used parks, and other areas where deer pressure is low or alternative food sources are abundant. Another correlation is woodlot management. Woodlots that are undisturbed or harvested according to low-impact “best management practices” provide better growing conditions

  2. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
