Red Trillium

A red flower with three petals and three supporting leaves, growing in forest floors, flowering in spring and native to Quebec.

How to Identify?

Three red, purple petals alternated by three green leaves (bracts). There is a white morph which looks very similar to Large White Trillium. If you spot a the white morph look at arrangement and form of stamens and pistils.

We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.

Where & When to Spot?

I see this flower late April and May on the forest floor in Park Angrignon.

With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.

Anything to add, to correct?
