Trillium vaseyi / Lily Family
April 20, 2005
It is easy to confuse this Trillium with the Red Erect Trillium. The flower stalk hangs below the leaves and the petals of Vasey's trillium are curved backward. Last year I found this blooming along the Northridge Trail in Oak Ridge on 04-04-04! Close-up photo follows.
