Trillium’s are found throughout the forest of the Pacific Northwest. Usually found under the cover of larger trees in a small clearing, the Trillium starts blooming in March and April.

The three spade shaped leaves and the pure white three petal flower give the Trillium a striking contrast with the forest background.
