Chattahoochee River wakerobin, Trillium decipiens

Case says of Chattahoochee, "If it never flowered, it would still be a useful plant in the garden for the unusual brilliance of its leaf mottling." This image is indeed from his garden near Saginaw. Decipiens means deceiving, and this species is also called deceiving trillium. It is quite similar to T. underwoodii. Much of Chattahoochee's range if along that river in AL and GA; and in northwest FL. 5/8/81.

Today's entry makes one thousand images in the album.
