I hope to be able to spend more time in the woods someday! I notice your trilliums are a little bit different than the ones that grow here! How absolutely lovely!

HI, KJo! We have three different kinds of trilliums, the large white, the wake robin and a green one that I haven't been able to find any info on. My grandfather used to call the red stinking Benjamins. I have no idea who Benjamin was, but they do have a less than pleasant oder.

I had heard that the ones here called wake robins.. I have a picture but don't see how to attach it to this thread.. The leaves of the ones I have in the woods are "mottled" The flower is burgundy...

I've seen them around here as well, but not in my woods. I love the leaves.

Yes, It's look almost exactly like that.. The picture of yours has a little fatter leaf than mine.

I have been to a tree graftng school today.. That was interesting..
