Red Trillium - Trillium erectum Vivid, dirty, and growing on a rock! There were several red trillium plants growing on top of a large rock with a scant amount of soil on it. They grow in the same spot every spring, and yet I never remember to back up and get a shot of them on top of the rock!<br />
