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?
