(Almost) Wordless Wednesday – Trillium

ALMOST

This is an ALMOST Wordless Wednesday post, because I want to tell you a little about this special plant. I believe that this TRILLIUM is a Trillium ovatum, a native plant here in the Pacific Northwest. According to the Sunset New Western Garden Book, this spring-blooming plant is a member of the lily family.

I anticipate the appearance of this particular trillium each Spring, on the forested side of our driveway. From what I’ve heard, trilliums do not transplant well, so I just leave it alone and admire it from a distance.

Do any of you have this type of trillium growing in your area?

    We have trilliums here, but then we aren’t all that far from you. 🙂 I have always loved trilliums. They are one of my favorite flowers. They are simple, but somehow I still find them interesting..

    And I have transplanted one. It grew very nicely in my old yard and was still coming back every year when we moved.
