Triliums are also called tri flowers, birthroot or wake-robins. Some 40–50 species of these spring perennials are native to temperate regions of North America and Asia.

Among the showiest, is Trillium Grandiflorum or the Large White Trillium. At its peak the flower is pure white but as it ages, it turns to pale pink. They can form whole carpets on the forest floor and are magnificent, especially mixed with wild blue-bells as they often are.

There are several other trilliums native to Illinois but this is the most spectacular. A spring ephemeral, it blooms in early May and not for very long.

In some states and in parts of Canada, they’re listed as Endangered and picking is illegal. If you’re lucky enough to see them in the woods, take only photos! Don’t pick/ don’t touch/ don’t try to dig them up or step on any, as once disturbed they don’t come back.
