Trilliums (trillium grandiflorum) are wild flowers found in scattered colonies in moist, open woodlands. The white trillium is the Provincial Flower of Ontario, and the State Flower of Ohio. Trilliums are a popular native garden plant in areas where they can be grown in moist soil in sheltered spots. They are somewhat tolerant of deer, and can be planted on slopes. The trillium is often the first flower to be seen in spring. Trilliums should not be picked. It is illegal in some states and provinces. The three leaves below the flower are the only source of food for the plant, and a picked flower may die or take many years to recover.
