What is a Trilium?

He loves me. He loves me not. HE LOVES ME!

 

The three-petal Trillium is one of the most beloved of all native plants. A small, white to pink to deep lavender delicate plant, it is often found in forests or deep ravines.  Arising about the same time as the robins return, it has been called the wake-robin.

 

In 2001 we were looking for just the right name for our event center and discovered it while hiking through the woods in beautiful Hoffmaster State Park. We rounded the dune and were amazed to see a field of these elegant and pristine white beauties. Right at that moment we knew we just had to call it Trillium!
