A True Ontario Spring

Nothing says Ontario more than the white trillium flower. It is the emblem of Ontario after all. I’m lucky enough to have a few of these beauties in my backyard. They only show themselves briefly in mid spring and if it’s a good year you will see them in abundance when out hiking in the local parks.


They don’t just come in white but occasionally, if you’re lucky, you can find a red trillium, a nodding trillium, a painted trillium or the endangered dropping trillium here in Ontario. I’ve been lucky in my travels to have seen the red trillium and the nodding trillium. Which have you spotted in the wild?
