Trillium rivale syn. Pseudotrillium rivale

 

Brook Wake Robin

Trilliums, also known as Wake Robin, or Tri Flowers, are Spring-flowering perennials with flowers with three petals that sit on three leaves. They take a long time to establish and multiply, but then are long-lived, so it is best to leave them alone once planted. Trillium rivale is an herbaceous perennial that grows up to 12cm, with upright stems that bear a solitary pink to white flower with purple speckles near the throat, and a whorl of 3 leaves.
