We know Spring has really come to the Northwest when the Trillium appear in the woods. Here is a gorgeous specimen I spotted right beside Adventure Trail on Tiger Mountain.

The name Trillium comes from the Latin word for three, tres. Trilliums have all their parts in threes: three leaves, three sepals, three petals. All Trillium
species are divided into two subgenera: the pedicellate Trilliums and the sessile Trilliums. Our most common Northwest native, Trillium ovatum belongs to the
pedicellate Trilliums, those that bear their single flower on a small stalk, or pedicel, above the juncture of the three green leaves.
