They cover a wide area of my backyard just like the bloodroot when they were in bloom. I notice out here in the country part of town that everyone has trillium in their wooded part of the yard. Now I see why our province flower is the trillium – these flowers are everywhere in the spring. And they are just lovely surrounding our wood shed.
She must be the queen with her head held high. This one was about a foot tall. Sorry these photos aren’t great, I took them in the late evening.
From Wikipedia –
While it is a popular belief that it is illegal to pick the common Trillium grandiflorum (white trillium) in Ontario, in reality they are only protected in provincial parks and land owned by conservation authorities. However, the rare Trillium flexipes (drooping trillium) is protected by law in Ontario, because of its very small Canadian population.
A white trillium serves as the emblem and official flower of the Canadian province of Ontario. It is an official symbol of the Government of Ontario. The large white trillium is the official wildflower of Ohio.
