Toadshade Trillium

Trillium sessile


Spotted in early March at Elachee Nature Center near Gainesville, GA. The three maroon petals, maintain a "closed" posture throughout its presence, the petals are occasionally pale green. The leaves are sometimes, but not always mottled with shades of light and dark green. We noticed before the flower comes, the 3 leaves are more perky and cup shaped but the plants that had their flower the leaves had reversed and angled down.


By the creek along a woodsy trail.
