This colony of trillium has been growing for many years. I transplanted it into a very large pot last year. I removed the garden bed it resided in, so I had to evict it. It is an early bloomer.

Trillium has a natural habitat on the forest floor, and it likes to bloom before deciduous trees wake from their winter slumber.

The white blooms attract pollinators to distribute pollen and fertilize the ovum. These flowers reproduce by dropping a seed. It usually germinates nearby, creating this colony habit. When the flower has been pollinated the white flower turns a pinky purple color.
