Artist's Description

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: www.torontobotanicalgarden.ca ……

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.
