April 17, 2005
This is the largest and showiest of the trilliums. Frozen Head State Park has a fantastic showing of these beautiful flowers in mid-April. I like to take people to a large field of them along the Panther Branch Trail when I lead hikes there. The flowers turn a pale pink as they age.
Where seen: Oak Ridge Greenways, Great Smoky Mountains NP, Frozen Head SP, Ijams Nature Center
