Earth Day Wild White Trilliums

A strikingly beautiful woodland wildflower…


Riverdale neighbourhood, Toronto, Canada | White Trilliums are some of my favourite woodland wildflowers. If you pick one it will take seven years to grow back.

It’s Earth Day when wild White Trilliums blossom in the garden. Native to the eastern woodlands of North America they blanket the forest floor in early spring.

A rarity, illegal to pick or transplant in some states and provinces because they take several years to recover. Provincial flower of Ontario and State flower of Ohio. Listed as an endangered wildflower in the State of Maine.
