Purple Trillium

Purple trilliums (trillium erectum) are a woodland species that blooms in the spring.

They grow in my small spring wildflower garden that’s centered between a pine and a hackberry tree.

Trilliums have parts in three’s — three leaves, three petals and three sepals.

This picture shows the parts more clearly.

This is my only yellow trillium. It was a gift from a friend.

Virginia bluebells grow among them too.
