May be one of the most common trillium in the wild around the Twin Cities (Could also be Nodding Trillium, too as both species' home ranges overlaps in central and Southern part of Eastern Minnesota). In the book, Trilliums the authors said that this is a very confusing genus as many hybrids takes place with other species - a clear example is the maroon flowers in some of the Plantfile pictures that claim to be this species are actually hybrids - the true species only have white flowers.

Positive Toxicodendron On Apr 24, 2005, Toxicodendron from Piedmont, MO (Zone 6a) wrote:

This lovely trillium grows quite tall, usually about 16 inches, but up to 24 inches. It is found in moist, rich, shady bottomlands. The large (2 1/2 inch) white flower is attached to a long extension of the plant stem and it can face upwards or droop (nod) downwards.
The large leaves have 3 divisions and are unmottled.
Latin name refers to tri (three, referring to the leaf part) and lilium (lily, referring to the bloom).
