Trillium grandiflorum (Large-flowered or Great White Trillium)
This showy trillium, with flower diameters up to four inches, is a familiar spring native wildflower in the Mid-Atlantic* woodlands of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Appalachian Plateaus. The Virginia Native Plant Society named Great White Trillium Wildflower of the Year in 1996.
*In the Mid-Atlantic Region, it is native to DC, to five counties in MD, and to the mostly western counties of PA. In VA, it is common in the mountains and rare in the inner Piedmont. It is not native to NoVA although it may grow where it has escaped cutivation as it does in DE where it is adventive in the rich Brandywine Valley.
