stunning.
I would love to plant these, but would be heartbroken if the deer did them all in.
also love the peek-a-boo jack shot

Default Is this a trillium?

We saw these on vacation in Mount Magazine State Park. I assumed they were trilliums, but the flowers don't look like yours. Are they trilliums?

Definitely. My guess would be either Trillium cuneatum, Trillium gracile, or Trillium ludovicianum, all of which can be found in Louisiana.

You don't think the new owners would shoot me if I took a look around?

If you have to start typing from a standing position because of bb's in your butt> I guess we'll know the answer to your question. Why don't you walk up to their front door and ask to see them?

Beautiful pics. I'd like my garden to look like that, too.

Thanks! My wife deserves credit for the photography; I'm just the plant scout.

Oops - forgot to specify - they were in Arkansas. We went on vacation and hubby took pics for me of all the wildflowers on the hiking trail.
