Walking in the woods at this time of the year you will see dotted throughout the woodland the magnificent Trillium, Trillium grandiflorum. This spring beauty is native to rich woods, thickets in Ontario, Quebec, wester Maine and New Hampshire as far south as Georgia. This plant is protected here in Ontario as it is against the law to pick them. It is also our Provincial emblem.
This one is the Purple Trillium, Trillium erectum. If you wish to grow Trillium make sure you purchase it at a reputable nursery. Mine grow under our front bay window where it is shady and cool.
