Great White Trillium - Trillium grandiflorum (Spring Ephemeral)

Trillium grandiflorum is most common in rich, mixed upland forests. It is easily recognised by its attractive three-petaled white flowers, opening from late spring to early summer, that rise above a whorl of three, leaf-like bracts. It is an example of a spring ephemeral, a plant whose life-cycle is synchronised with that of the deciduous woodland which it favours.

Trillium grandiflorum as well as other trilliums are a favored food of white-tailed deer.

Other names include: White trillium, large-flowered trillium, white wake-robin, French: trille blanc.
