      1. I'm already looking forward to early spring here in the Southeast as I hope to find some more rare species! <3

        My favorite Trillium so far (that I have observed) are Trillium luteum and Trillium decumbens!

          1. Unfamiliar with the other two but I have come across the bashful in the US. Posted 2 years ago
            1. It is pretty common, but it always wows me! :)

              The other two are Vulnerable/rare species.

              P.S. Really enjoying your flowers if you couldn't tell!

      1. Ah most excellent Christine! They are very beautiful to see in the wild. Posted 8 months ago
        1. Thanks, Greg! It was an exciting find :). Posted 8 months ago
          1. I usually find them in Ontario & Quebec, not sure if I will see them this year with the quarantine Posted 8 months ago
            1. Oh - are you not not allowed to hike in those areas now? I have still been able to hike, but currently am only able to hike in CT. Leaving the state would mean a 2-week quarantine. Posted 8 months ago
              1. Ontario location is in a Conservation Area, that I believe is closed...I might get to the Quebec location but it is difficult to get over the border Posted 8 months ago
                1. Gotcha. I hope you're able to get out, when it's safe to do so. Posted 8 months ago
