    2. You will have to come visit me down here to find it though :) Only found in 3 states! Posted one year ago
      1. I know! Road trip as soon as I can sit in a car for that long ;). You have so many incredible species on your land that I've never seen <3 Posted one year ago
    3. I can only agree it is stunning, also for being so locally endemic. Fascinating how unusual black flower plants are and how people respond to them. We found a black flowered plants in Colombia and apparently people pay hundreds of dollars just to acquire one. Posted one year ago

''Trillium decumbens'', the trailing wakerobin or trailing trillium, is a perennial wildflower which blooms from mid-March to April. Unlike most other trilliums, its stems grow along the ground rather than standing upright, so that the plant appears to rest on the ground. Its leaves are mottled green and bronze, overlaid with silver, dying back early in the season. The flowers are dark maroon or purple. After flowering, it bears a dark purple berry.

It is native to southeastern Tennessee.. more
