FOY Trillium

We found this single lonely Red Trillium plant Saturday in the same area where the very rare "Painted Trillium" is also regularly found. (Painted Trilliums are one of, if not the rarest of Trilliums and found only in Michigan in one of few areas--this being one.) :W

Nice shot Russ! I guess 'maybe' spring is actually going to happen this year. Ol man winter sure does not seem to want to let go.

Russ, nice to know the "reds" are coming in to bloom. The Painted will not be far behind.
Thanks for sharing the nice photo.

Just one point if I may, Painted Trillium are not uncommon in some southern states, namely
Eastern Tennessee, North Carolina and East. They are rare in Michigan as you stated, being only
found in St. Clair Co. . I would say they are one of two very rare trillium in Michigan,
the other being Snow Trillium (Trillium nivale).
