A Beautiful Flower for Your Wooded Area
From Canada down to Georgia, one of the loveliest signs of spring is the trillium. There are dozens of species native to North America. Some of them, like the Trillium Grandiflora, produce big, white flowers, while others, such as the Sweet Wakerobin, are a deep maroon. Though they're less common than they used to be, due to the clearcutting of forests and collectors, you still see them along forest paths and shady, undisturbed areas. With a little patience, you can create a beautiful stand of trilliums under your trees.
