Great White Trillium

With three broad white leaves, this flower is categorized as a trillium. Trillium literally means "three parted lily." This one is the largest of this kind ranging from 12"-18" tall. With age they can turn to pink. A superstition is said that if a trillium is picked off a mountain, it will cause rain. The white trillium is a symbol for modest beauty.
