Three Trilliums

Three species of trilliums bloom in my spring wildflower garden.

Purple trillium (trillium recurvatum) started blooming first and is the most common.

White trilliums (Trillium flexipes) grow in a relatively tight group.

Most of the flowers in this garden were given to me years ago by a friend when she started having health problems.

This third trillium surprised me this year … I’d totally forgotten about it, since it only bloomed the spring a friend gave it to me several years ago. Then I almost stepped on it a few evenings ago. It only stands 8 inches tall and certainly blends in with its surroundings.

The trilliums bloom among wild gingers, bluebells, wild geraniums, purple and white violets, bloodroot and Jack-in-the-pulpits.

  2. Beautiful! I’ve tried to grow them but no luck. I’ll just have to settle for seeing them in the wild.
