Trilliums have always been a bit magical to me. Most Ontario residents believe it’s illegal to pick a trillium (they are a protected flower) and while that’s not strictly true it created for me a kind of aura about this lovely plant. As a child, I believed if I were to pick a trillium then surely a police officer would appear out of thin air to haul me away to flower jail. :-)

While not illegal to pick one of these flowers, it is thoughtless for it can harm the plant to a very great degree. So the nicest way to enjoy a trillium is a walk in the woods on a beautiful June day. The next best way is to get a photograph!

From: ……

A strikingly beautiful wildflower, Trillium grandiflorum was formally recognized as Ontario’s floral emblem in 1937. Traditionally botanists placed trilliums in the lily family (Liliaceae). However, modern botanists place them in a separate family,Trilliaceae. The Genus has 30 species of deciduous perennials that spread by rhizomes.

Trillium grandiflorum (Great white trillium): Grows 16 to18inches in height spreading up to 2 feet. Vigorous clump forming perennial with dark green ovate to rounded leaves (up to 12 inches long). Pure white flowers bloom in mid-spring with green sepals. These often fade to a pinkish colour. Flower petals (up to 3 inches long) are broad and ovate in shape, cupped at first then open widely. This is the ‘classic’ Ontario emblem.

    Thank you Vickie! I’m really looking forward to spring when the trilliums are carpeting the countryside around here. I like the idea that you require a bit of information about a wildflower when posting in your group. It’s a great way to learn about the things we’re actually photographing. :-)
