The White Trillium

The White Trillium is in bloom throughout eastern North America and it can be found in deciduous and mixed forests. I took these photos at my cottage located just a few hours outside of Toronto.

Due to conservation concerns of wild cultivation, the Trillium has become protected by law in many Canadian provinces and American states.

 

The White Trillium is appreciated in Canadian heraldry and serves as the official provincial flower and emblem of Ontario. What have your experiences been with this flower? Have you seen them before?

About The Pal Guy

Ever since the moment I got my first camera I was bit by the “shutter-bug”. My love of nature has become a constant theme of my photography along with architecture, sights and destinations.

  1. Beautiful flower en pictures, very interesting blog-Agnès

  2. Nice post, I grew up with white trillium in my front yard (an early 1900’s bit of landscape gardening) so I never realized they were so rare until I started doing forestry work, you almost never see them in the woods of southern New England, but you do see the red, wake-robin, trillium.

  3. I love trillium. I remember seeing red ones at Gatineau Park in the spring.
