Trilliaceae > Trillium ovatum var. ,

Trillium ovatum, the Western Wake Robin or Western White Trillium, is a member of the Trilliaceae family. It occurs in parts of the western United States and western Canada, usually in rich forest. Occasional Trillium ovatum plants have petals that are maroon rather than the typical white. This is not to be confused with the typical pinkness observed as the petals age.[1]

Picking the flower causes great harm to the plant, which depends on the leaves underneath to collect energy for the following year.

Calif. to Brit. Col.—The Pacific coast representative of T. grandiflorum. CH
