Trillium grandiflorum
Flowers fade to show some pink

Common name great white trillium
Family melanthiaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z2-9)
Flowers white (spring)
Size 12-18"
Light part-full shade

Woodland wildflower of Eastern North America. Large white flowers in spring. Just a small plant for now; the photo at top right shows the just-emerged plant in late March, already getting to its business of blooming; the photo at top left was taken a year later in mid-April (spring arrived later that year). A few weeks after flowering starts, when the show is almost over, the white petals are streaked with pink as they fade.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
