Western Trillium (Trillium ovatum)

Here's another spring wildflower encountered in Goldstream Park recently, our local species of Trillium, called Western Trillium (Trillium ovatum). Initially white, the flower turns this shade of purple as it ages.

Oh how I loved to go searching for trilliums when I was a little girl living on Vancouver Island. It was such a thrill to find them as well as pussy willows and when I did I knew that spring had arrived.

Thank for post this as I have never seen a western trillium, I have been over dosing on the White Trillium (Trillium grandiflorum) which seems to have a much larger flower. Great photos Benjamin!
