Painted Trillium

The Painted Trillium is found in acidic soil that borders wetlands across Eastern North America in Canada and the United States. This flower was found in the Copeland Forest in Ontario.

Like a painted added streaks of red to the center of what would otherwise be mistaken for a White Trillium, this species is one if the most ornate varieties that are native to Ontario. Not nearly as common as White and Red Trilliums due to their specific habitat requirements, they are joy to discover – often well off the beaten path.
