Little Sweet Betsy and Yellow Trillium!
"These next two trilliums may be found in Michigan, most likely at botanical gardens or nature preserves, but are not native to the State.
The first is Little Sweet Betsy, Trillium cuneatum. It is much like the
Sessile Trillium in an earlier post, but note the leaves on this
trillium are pointed. The color of the leaf is also different. This
trillium is native in Tennessee, Northern Georgia, and Alabama. In
Michigan it can be found in flower in early to mid May. Photographed in
"The second photo is the Yellow Trillium, trillium luteum. It is also
called Yellow Toadshade. A native plant of Western North Carolina and
Eastern Tennessee, it can be found in flower in Michigan in early to mid
May. Photographed in Genesee County."
Ruth and I have enjoyed sharing these wonderful wildflowers with you
all, and hope you have likewise enjoyed seeing them. Please remember
they are all protected wildflowers.
Have a great spring!!
Dale and Ruth
