Another favorite, this time hailing from the upper drainage of the Savannah River on the border between S Carolina and Georgia. In comparison with the other yellow sessile trillium, T luteum, this is a truly refined species and quite distinct. the petals T discolor are a soft creamy yellow and upon seeing large colonies of them, the effect is one of seeing thousands of candles. The petal shape is unique in that they are quite spatulate, much broader at the tip than the base, and the stamens are purple. They can be delightfully but not strongly fragrant of lemons and particularly nice forms may have strong red flares extending up from the base of the petals.
