Large White Trillium (Trillium grandiflorum)

A three-petaled white flower native to Quebec and one of the first flowering plants in spring.

How To Identify

Large white flower with three white petals alternated by 3 green leaves (bracts). Seasonality together with the position of the three white petals and alternating leaves. Note that there are pink variants or with 6 white petals.

I usually spot this flower in the forest section of Park Angrignon late April early May.
