Trillium!

  1. We have had a spectacular trillium bloom in our woods this year. I would like to display a few examples for the wildflower enthusiasts on the forum (all four of us ;)).

    1. Large-flowered trillium (trillium grandiflorum)

  2. If I'm not in your 4, you can make it 5. These are lovely. I envy you the large numbers of Trilliums. We get only Nodding trillium, Trillium cernuum which I've never found in large numbers.

    Great! Great! Great!
    Jim all your series of wildflowers have my serious respect.
    I know some kinds of these flowers too, but others are new to me...

    Fantastic photography

  5. Super images, Jim. The best I've seen were in the Smoky Mountains NP a couple of years back where there was a stunning display. Trillium are not very common here in the UK so it's great to see these.
     
  6. Thanks, Larry. That nodding trillium looks like a very interesting flower that I have never seen. We also get painted trillium (trillium undulatum), but that blooms a bit later (picture from mid-May 2015):

    Thanks, William.

    Many thanks, Klaus.

    Thank you very much. I'm sure there are beautiful displays in the Smokies as the soil and climate down there are very similar to here.
     
  7. Thanks for sharing, Jim! Love the trillium, used to see many of them in my previous life in the Blue Ridge High Country...
     
  8. My pleasure, Tom.

    They are beautiful! We're having an explosion of trillium in my area this year also. Actually, an explosion of all wildflowers.
     
  10. Thanks, Mike. It seems to be a banner year here, too.
     
  11. Gorgeous shots Jim, I love the Trillium family!
     
  12. Thanks, Rich.
